Event Description:

The Columbia River Maritime Museum welcomes Peter Brix in the Museum Store with the release of his book, The Brix Maritime Story available for signed purchase. 

Recounted by a third generation Brix who worked from deckhand to CEO of Knappton Towboat Company (later Brix Maritime), The Brix Maritime Story is a unique telling of local and industry history.  Heavily  illustrated by maritime photos (many previously unpublished) and maps, it portrays the development of the industry over a 100-year span from 1909.  The book features information about several hundred tugboats and barges providing service in nearly all parts of North and Central America.

With attention paid to detail, accuracy and printing quality, the book will appeal to maritime enthusiasts or anyone interested in a personal story of how one family helped to shape the marine transportation business.
