Summary
"The book is neither a traveler's guide to the Mississippi River nor a linear history. Instead, it is a series of historical stories, at times humorous, about people and places linked by the Mississippi River that inform modern travelers about the Upper Mississippi and its role in our region's history. The stories cover the Upper Mississippi, roughly from Dubuque north to the river's source at Lake Itasca. While most stories focus on Wisconsin, some take place in Iowa, Illinois, and Minnesota. The author, Dennis McCann, has relied on the National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium in Dubuque, as well as several seminal histories of people and places along the river, for background and research"--Provided by publisher
