About this book
An adventurous epic of a cycling marathon undertaken for the BBC Radio 5 Live programme 'Up All Night' alongside the Mississippi River. A river with a mind of its own; an aquatic Action Man, a doer-of-deeds over which humans have no control; a flowing, enigmatic spirit that is the custodian of some amazing tales and dark secrets. The stories are an eclectic mix of the bizarre, outrageous, heart-rending, uplifting, and downright hair-raising.
