Where the River Runs Deep: The Story of a Mississippi River Pilot

  • Joy J. Jackson's Where the River Runs Deep tells two stories--both significant and both fascinating. It is a biography of the author's father, Oliver Jackson, who spent virtually his entire life on or near the Mississippi River. And it is a history of the river itself, and the many changes that have transformed it in the twentieth century.


    Where the River Runs Deep is a story of river life unlike any other. It will appeal to students of regional history and family history, as well as to anyone fascinated by the lore of the Mississippi.
