Deep Water: More Advance Praise

One final piece of pre-publication praise for Deep Water, from Professor Sarah Churchwell, author of a number of wonderful books, most recently Behold America: A History of America First and the American Dream:
“An exemplary work of American literary history, situating Mark Twain's writing about the river that so defined it within a wider understanding of how that river culture also shaped America. Comprehensively researched, sweeping in its scope, rich in its depths, Smith's book is an authoritative - likely definitive - primer for understanding what the deep waters of 'The Mississippi' meant to Twain, and still means to American culture.”
Available December 17!
