Dreaming The Mississippi - neues Buch

ISBN: 9780826216861

ID: 17931956

Nearly every American knows something about the Mississippi River, if only from Mark Twain's one-eyed gamblers and cussing steamboat captains. But those images belong to another time, nearly another river. Katherine Fischer fell in love with today's Mississippi, and in this book she invites readers to journey along a twenty-first-century river of silt and lore. Offering a fresh perspective on. Nearly every American knows something about the Mississippi River, if only from Mark Twain's one-eyed gamblers and cussing steamboat captains. But those images belong to another time, nearly another river. Katherine Fischer fell in love with today's Mississippi, and in this book she invites readers to journey along a twenty-first-century river of silt and lore. Offering a fresh perspective on the river's environment, industry, and recreation, "Dreaming the Mississippi" challenges old stereotypes through the experiences of modern Americans who work the barges, rope-swing into muddy bottoms, struggle against hurricane floodwaters, and otherwise find new meaning on this great watery corridor. In an engaging voice, earnest and energetic, Fischer describes how the river's natural and human histories overlap and interweave as she tells of her own gradual immersion in its life - which led her to buy a house so close to its banks that each spring she must open her basement doors to accept its inevitable floods. Fischer blends stories of people living along the river with accounts of national and global consequence. She weaves humorous accounts of river rats and towboat pilots with stories of sandbagging against a flood tide that refuses to be contained. She tells of river hangouts - "joints" that literally join segments of humanity along the river - as she revels in the colorful clientele of her favorite waterfront taverns. Some chapters connect the wildness of this mythical river to outside regions such as the Great Salt Lake and Florida, taking the lure of the mighty Mississippi as far as Japan. Another chapter, about the river's mouth, "Gulf," considers the gulf between engineers and naturalists - and between America's haves and have-nots - as it offers heartfelt reflections on Katrina's wrath. Through compelling words and photographs, "Dreaming the Mississippi" invites readers to taste life on today's Mississippi, as sweet, tangy, and wildly cantankerous as it get.
