Autobiographical journey down the Missouri River in 1908.

In 1908, the brilliant poet and writer John G. Neihardt traveled by canoe down the then-untamed Missouri River for fifty-six days. His account, rousing and elegantly reflective, showcases the long ago, fascinating world through which the mighty river passed. The River and I is at once a classic adventure tale, an enduring homage to the Old West, and a tale of an abiding love for a relentless river and those affected by it.

“The book is wholly admirable in style and story.” — New York Times

“An exhilarating adventure story … enlivened by humor, social criticism, and philosophical speculation.” — Western American Literature

“A memorable blending of poetry, realistic on-the-spot reporting, fur trade history, Greek mythology, and love for the river … that reaches a high-water mark in the literature of the West.” — Denver Westerners Monthly Roundup
