Missouri is known as the “Great Rivers State”. For many of us, our fondest memories involve floating down one of Missouri’s beautiful and diverse rivers which provide a path through the heart of all our state’s nature offers.
Bill Turner just published a wonderful book highlighting the historical and ecological stories that our rivers have written on the landscape called “Voices of Missouri’s Rivers”. With chapters focusing on the Osage, Missouri, Mississippi and Ozark Rivers, this is the finest compendium of Missouri river lore and science that you can find. Bill will share some of these stories with us in this special Big Muddy Speaker Series presentation.
