Big Muddy Blues: True Tales and Twisted Politics Along Lewis and Clark's Missouri River
The story of what happened -- and keeps happening -- to American's longest river
Two-hundred years after Lewis and Clark's fateful expedition along the Missouri River, the famed waterway is the venue for a vast, politically driven drama. Struggles along the river from Missouri to Montana pit conservation, development, farm, barge, American Indian and government interests against one another in clashes complicated by water scarcity in the basin.
