Waves of Wisdom
Grace, Guts, and Gators on the Lower Mississippi
by Nancy Scheibe
Nancy Scheibe began an adventurous paddle at the headwaters of the Mississippi River as a celebration of her 50th birthday. The simple trip evovled into a journey of 2,320 miles from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico. Her story includes moments of heart-stopping danger, hours of wilderness serenity, and days of getting to know the river and the people who live along its shores. In this book, she takes the reader along the third and final section, paddling from St. Louis to the Gulf.
