Doris Turner – What does the river mean to you? [VIDEO]

I had the honor of interviewing Dorris Turner, lifelong resident of Guntersville. Her daddy was captain of steamboats that ferried entire railroad trains 26 miles down the Tennessee River.

Thanks to Terry Ware for photographs of the railroad seamboats.
