Eight Great Tragedies: The Complete Texts of the Worlds Great Tragedies from Ancient Times to the Twentieth Century by Barnet, Sylvan

Some of my best time on the River has been in the company of game wardens, biologists, commercial fishermen, clammers, trappers, hunters, and a smelly, mud-smeared coterie of river rats in general, wrote John Madson of his thirty-year acquaintance with the Mississippi. Up on the River is his loving and sometimes uproariously funny tribute. Whether hes recounting the great freshwater pearl craze of the 1890s or contemplating the dogfish (a species that is a hangover from ancient times, and like any hangover it is not pleasant to behold) or describing Paddlefoot, the riverboat deckhand whose feet were the biggest living things without teeth, Madsons writing is eloquent and original. Like Joseph Mitchells Up in the Old Hotel or William Warners Beautiful Swimmers, this is a classic book about a singular Americana place. (53/4 X 9, 288 pages, illustrations
