In the spring of 1970, William Chapman said goodbye to his conventional life in the city to build a raft on the banks of the upper Mississippi River. He spent the next six months floating and exploring more than 2000 miles to the Gulf of Mexico. In 2002, more than 32 years later, he retraced his orignal route down the river. "Rafting the Mississippi- A Journey Through Time" is a photographic and written account of life on the river as a modern day Huck Finn. Publishing date is to be announced soon.
