If the Mississippi river was a playlist, it would be a crazy mix, and each hour of this series explores a radically different location along North America’s greatest waterway. In the north, predators like wolves and bobcats prowl. In the Midwest, giant sturgeon occupy the waterway while black bear and coyotes hunt the banks. In the south, wild pigs dodge alligators, and swarms of jellyfish mingle by the million. In Mississippi, culture and history run as deep as its mighty river. Soar over landmarks where civil rights movements were waged, civil war battles were lost and the blues was born. The Magnolia state is a land of seductive landscapes and endless creativity, giving us literary geniuses such as Tennessee Williams, and musical legends Muddy Waters and Elvis. Join us in this land of hospitality, beauty and complexity.
