With a mathematician's attention to detail, an adventurer's insatiable curiosity and his own unassuming, friendly and open way of meeting the world, Larry Campbell is the perfect person for a journey like this.
America's great rivers and those who live along the banks are among our nation's greatest treasures, yet sometimes seem to be under-appreciated. Let yourself settle in and enjoy this information-packed and yet lighthearted exploration of the Missouri River and her people.

The beautiful photography and descriptive passages of the people he met along the way added to the local color and flavor and kept my interest as Larry Campbell did much more than just tell the history of the ‘Mighty Mo.’ He actually took me with him on his adventure.”

(What a) good . . . story-teller, everything flows like the Missouri River on a summer day. I can feel the weather, see the Cathedral, hear the voices of the people he met, enjoy the photography...

What’s not to like about a colorful and entertaining recount of an incredible adventure that I honestly wish I had thought to undertake! From castles and cathedrals in remote locales to dog statues and kind locals who opened their world to Campbell, the vignettes are lively and poignant. Campbell presents a comfortable story-telling style, tying together the power and glory of nature with the hope of human being. A beautiful and authoritative package!
