In 1908, the brilliant poet and writer John G. Neihardt traveled by canoe down the then-untamed Missouri River for 56 days. His account, rousing and elegantly reflective, showcases the long ago, fascinating world through which the mighty river passed. The River and I is at once a classic adventure tale, an enduring homage to the Old West, and a tale of an abiding love for a relentless river and those affected by it.

John Niehardt's daughter and grand daughters were a part of my equestrian youth in Columbia, MO. I read this book to get a glimpse of the great man who was their father, grandfather. Thank you.
