WICKED RIVER The Mississippi When it Last Ran Wild

by | Read by Jeff McCarthy

History • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Jeff McCarthy delivers Sandlin’s social history of the Mississippi River. Sandlin attempts to dispel the romanticized myth of the majestic Mississippi and tell the true story of life on the river up to the time of the Civil War. His stories range from the harshness of life and descriptions of the boats that made their way down the river to the myths and tall tales that developed in this region. McCarthy’s reading ties these disparate elements together. His deep voice is tinged with a degree of excitement, perfect for the pioneering spirit of those who lived on the river, and his timing maintains the pace of the stories as well as enhances their comedic elements.
