The Old-Time River Rats

By: Kenny Salwey

Old Time River RatsTales of bygone days of colorful characters that once populated the Upper Mississippi River Valley swamps and floodplain forests. These are the river rats, hill and bluff farm folk, and swamp dogs whose stories Kenny Salwey tells so well. Now long gone, these legendary characters of the river bottoms come alive in Kenny's signature brand of storytelling, rife with insight and laughter, woods lore and a time-tested philosophy of the natural world. With a foreword by regional historian Gary Schlosstein, this deep delving into the old-time community of the Mississippi River presents a rich picture of a life as fascinating as it is fast-disappearing in our fast-paced, high-tech world.
