Detailed Product Description
New York, Penguin Books, 1982. 409 pp, maps. Used paperback. Near Fine. 

The exhilarating account of the author's journey down the Mississippi. The voyage began in September 1979 in a 16' boat on a 3 month, 2000 mile trip down the Mississippi, from Minneapolis to New Orleans. The author envelops us totally in his journey, giving us a strong, rich sense of history, of people, and of tradition that is resistant to change. He takes us to pig roasts, to church on Sunday, to sleazy bars, to a state fair that will linger in our memory, and he reveals the people he meets along the way in encounters that are both tragic and comic. Map of voyage on 4 pages in front of book.
