A history of the river with firsthand accounts and photographs of the 1927 flood. Saxonï¿½s description of the discovery, exploration, and settlement of the delta combined with his collection of personal accounts makes for a compelling blend of personal, political, geographical, and historical facts. The book, considered as much a documentation of the disaster as an impassioned plea for help, demonstrates just how volatile an environment the Mississippi River region was and continues to be.
