True Tales is a pictorial and historical account of early 1900s river life. These are true adventures
of a Mississippi River family who lived near Quincy, Illinois on seven mile Long Island many years
before it was called Mark Twain National Wildlife Refuge. This 8.5" x 11" hard back has nearly
350 pages and is suitable as a table-top book. In order to authenticate the river facts, 86 libraries,
universities and publications were consulted to gather the support data and pictures. 60 short-story
chapters including 11 sketches and well over 200 black & white photos will rivet your attention and
capture your heart. Get ready for an escape back to an idyllic time when hearts were simpler and
passions, loyalties and conscience ran deeper.
True Tales will please the older river buffs,
warm and inspire the heart of the
middle aged and
the imaginations of the youthful.
