Individual signed and numbered prints from Waterfalls of the Mississippi
This is the story of eight waterfalls found in the Twin Cities—the only waterfalls along the entire 2,300-mile length of the Mississippi River. It is a thoroughly researched book that chronicles the early explorations of the Upper Mississippi River, leads you to tropical marine corals captured in stone, reminisces on the visits of Henry David Thoreau, Mark Twain, and Dvorak, and tells the tale of a 200-pound rodent dropped dead in the prime of its life.
Waterfalls of the Mississippi provides the most complete written description yet published of the magnificent River Warren Falls. The extensive bibliography contained in the book’s Sources of the Mississippi attests to the depth of writing and research found here. An elaborate fold-out map details over 30 miles of scenic trails that hug the banks and bluffs of the Mississippi as they lead you to this remarkable collection of waterfalls.
