Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Mississippi River, first traveled by Marquette and Joliet, then LaSalle, has been an inspiration to writers ever since, from Mark Twain in the 19th century to Jonathan Raban, who in Old Glory (LJ 9/15/81) recounted navigating the Mississippi in a 16' boat, and Daniel Spurr, who retraced LaSalle's steps in River of Forgotten Days (LJ 4/1/98). Now wildlife photographer Lockwood (Beneath the Rim: A Photgraphic Journey Through the Grand Canyon, Louisiana State Univ., 1996) adds to the literature, traveling the length of the river by canoe and pontoon boat. He meets river people--pilots, lockmasters, environmentalists concerned with pollution and silting--and logs his progress via the Internet. Lockwood's photographs make this a worthwhile addition in a crowded field--they capture the essence of Old Man River from source to mouth. For public libraries.--David Schau, Kanawha Cty.
