"The Brix Maritime Story tells a unique tale, showing how logging and marine transportation were joined in the early 1900s, with towboats and barges playing a central role in the economic growth of the Pacific Northwest. The over 100 year history of Brix Maritime (originally Knappton Towboat Company) is shared by third-generation Peter Brix, who served the family business as a deckhand and as CEO.

"Photographs, many from the author's personal collection, of over 260 tugboats are shown, and over 170 barges listed, complete with specifications. This beautiful hardbound book is a must have for the maritime and tugboat enthusiast."
