Summary
"Celebrates the cultural and artistic history of the Mississippi River by bringing together art in all media: paintings, prints, drawings, furniture, silver, ceramics, textiles, and sculpture ... [In essays], Whitmore explores the Mississippi Valley landscape, people, and architecture in paintings ... Busch uses furnishings and portraits to trace patterns of patronage and decoration along the river. And Monkhouse examines the development of America's artistic identity through the Mississippi River imagery in Longfellow's popular narrative poems 'Evangeline' and 'The song of Hiawatha'"--From publisher description
