In OLD MAN RIVER, Paul Schneider tells the story of the river at the center of America’s rich history --- the Mississippi. Some 15,000 years ago, the majestic river provided Paleolithic humans with the routes by which early man began to explore the continent’s interior. Since then, the river has been the site of historical significance, from the arrival of Spanish and French explorers in the 16th century to the Civil War.
