Overview

The Mississippi River flows through this book, interlacing with the bicycle adventures of Barb and Ted. The insistent energy, majesty and abundance of the river became a metaphor for the explorers who see what they missed before--their roots from New Orleans to Minnesota. The willful river's meanders encourage them to sample pecan pies, spend time with a mortician in Missouri, cheer barges through the river's many locks, and overcome seven broken spokes.

Editorial Reviews

Anonymous Reviewer
In a pleasant e-book--part travelogue, part memoir--about social mores, physical endurance, willpower and companionship, Johnson provides inspiration to readers both young and old.
Sue McGinty
...the story enfolds like a novel. It evokes images of life on the Mississippi: jazz, seafood gumbo, gentle Southern laughter on balmy nights ... heart warming and inspiring stories from America's heartland that keep the travelers pedaling.
