Wicked River: The Mississippi When It Last Ran Wild | [Lee Sandlin]

Wicked River: The Mississippi When It Last Ran Wild

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.

    "Worth a listen"

    A series of interesting historical vignettes, some well-known:others not, presented in an animated narration. I love history presented as a "story" and not a plodding trek through dates and factoids. This book is very much akin to The Devil in the White City, American Lightning, Thunderstruck, and Higher. By the way, the aforementioned books are at least 4 star quality as well.
