Read in June, 2011

This book was an easy read about the Mississippi River in the early 1800s. What a river! Sandlin has collected historical facts, stories and tales about life on the river and lives changed by the river. Having lived near the river in St. Paul I thought I knew the history about the "Mighty Mississippi." But, what a different, dangerous creature the river was when it did run free. Spring 2011 has shown humans once again that the river can rise up and make its mark on human lives.
