Monday on the MississippiBook - 2005
Early Sunday morning, when even the Mississippi seems too tired to roll, a single saxophone player swaying on the Esplanade wails the river's long story, black-coffee bitter, warm-beignet sweet to anyone awake enough to listen. Come take a tuneful trip down the great Mississippi River The Mississippi River is as long with stories as it is with water. From its mouth at Lake Itasca, Minnesota, the river glides through cities and villages, farmlands and lakes, picking up tales of the past and present-all in the course of a week. By the time it has reached the Gulf Coast Delta in Louisiana, the river has traveled 2,300 miles on its historical, cultural journey.This lyrically written and richly illustrated picture book pays tribute to America's most legendary and celebrated river.
