Andrew H. Malcolm and Roger Straus III tell in evocative words and eloquent pictures the story of the Mississippi and the Americans who live, love, work, and play along its length. We meet hard-hatted riverboat crew women, Tom Sawyer wannabes, a new breed of riverboat gamblers, elderly riverbank philosophers, and ferry pilots who have seen the river - and the people along it - change drastically over the years. We learn the thoughts of the ranger who lives in the.

"It started with a stumble." So begins the author's compelling true account of one woman's ordeal with a debilitating illness that would claim her life. The story of how she and her husband confronted their misfortune is as gripping a story as you will ever read; it also calls into question the whole range of complex problems prompted by the new medical technologies that can extend life -- even beyond the will to live it.

St. Martin's Press, New York : 1991.

Winding through fourteen states from Maine's northern tip to the Florida Keys, U.S. 1 ambles across woods, zips by beaches and straggles down the troubled streets of aging cities like Boston, New York, Richmond and Philadelphia. The road's 2467 miles are strewn with history: George Washington chopped down the cherry tree in Fredericksburg, Va.; New Haven, Conn., once the independent colony of Quinnipiack, was absorbed into the Colony of Connecticut in 1662. Prisons, Holiday Inns, old stagecoach routes, Civil War battles, bird sanctuaries and pristine coastal communities abound in the gracefully written essay by New York Times national affairs correspondent Malcolm. It's a delightful and revelatory journey through a lost America. The seventy-two duotone photographs by Straus, managing director of Farrar, Straus & Giroux, nicely capture the vagaries of life on the road, from a goat in a shopping mall to an automobile graveyard.
