These are a series of interesting essays about the Mississippi. It doesn't quite hold together as a book--there is no narrative drive. I thought that if it was a travel book that used the history to talk about a trip down the modern Mississippi it might be more successful. Still, some of these essays are really interesting and fun to read. Sandlin has a knack for finding great quotes and examples that are as entertaining as they are explanatory.
