Description: As a child in England, Jonathan Raban read Huckleberry Finn and dreamed of floating down the Mississippi. Thirty years later he realized his dream in a spartan sixteen-foot motorboat, navigating the river from Minneapolis to Morgan City, Louisiana, and producing a masterpiece of contemporary American travel writing that can be compared only to his own award-winning Bad Land.

In the course of his voyage, Raban records the mercurial caprices of the Mississippi and the astonishingly varied lives of the people who live along its hanks. Whether he is fishing for walleye or hunting coon, discussing theology in Prairie Du Chien or race relations in Memphis, he is an expert observer of the heartland's estrangement from America's capitals of power and culture, and of its helpless nostalgia for its lost past. Witty, elegiac, and magnificently erudite, Old Glory is as filled with strong currents as the Mississippi itself.
