Wicked River - The Mississippi When It Last Ran Wild

Lee Sandlin

Acclaimed journalist and author Lee Sandlin delivers a riveting glimpse of a dangerous and colorful place in America’s historical landscape—the Mississippi River of the 19th century. Long before it was dredged into a shipping channel or romanticized into myth, the untamed Mississippi—the lifeblood of communities that rose and fell along its banks—spawned a motley array of pirates and dignitaries, visionaries and thieves.
