Since time immemorial the Mississippi River has defined the identity of those who live, work and recreate along her banks and on her waters.She is at once eternal, fragile, inviting, menacing, ripe with promise, abiding disaster, constant but never the same. All embodied i n this great river these contradictions fascinate, provoke, challenge and sustain.Those who come to know her well forever carry her mystery and her beauty deep within their souls.
