A book of stolen pages describing the 2320.2 mile current of The Great Mississippi River. The 440 page book navigates from one voice to another, through history, past the muddy riverbanks, through valleys, okra fields and plantations. This portrait has been constructed with hundreds of poems mentioning the river, captivating words about the water and arranging them state by state, from the source of the river to the delta. The pagination and placing of the original lines where left intact, this way if you where to open the book at any given place you might see page 4 on the left pace facing page 387 on the right one.
