"Recounts not just a narrative of [Casto's] trip but also the colorful history of commerce on the Ohio, along with stories about the communities that grew up along the river and were nurtured by it." -- Herald-Dispatch, The Ironton Tribune
"The leisurely voyage provides an occasion for reflection on the history and current condition of Ohio River navigation, engagingly delivered by a seasoned journalist of the region. James E. Casto was born by the riverside. He writes from a lifetime of observation, and from his heart." -- Ken Sullivan, Editor, Goldenseal
"Our inland waterways and particularly the Ohio River system are crucial to the economic vitality of our region. In our fast-paced modern day lives, with the interstate highway bridges, it is easy to forget the importance of the river. Jim Casto's book recalls our attention to the life of the mighty Ohio in a personal and easy style. His book is a valuable addition to the lore and literature of the Ohio River." -- Dan Lacy, Ashland Oil, Inc.
"Interweaving Ohio River history among his firsthand accounts of towboat travel and life, Towboat on the Ohio kept me turning the pages." -- Molly Lightfoot Blom, Editor of HeartLand Boating
