    This map is one of the most beautiful depictions of the Mississippi River that I’ve ever seen. Each color marks a different course that the river has taken throughout its history. If I ever write a book, I want this to be the cover.

Fisk, 1944. Map of ancient courses of the Mississippi River, Cape Girardeau, MO by Harold N.Fisk, 1944. #Map #Mississippi #Alluvial_Valley

"You don't usually think of the Mississippi River changing its course. Surely, this grand waterway has run the same course for time immemorial. Not so, though, as you can see in these illustrations by cartographer, Harold N. Fisk created in 1944."

Get a big map of the world, or United States and you throw darts at it. It's more of a family project, or if you like to travel. Wherever the dart lands, that's the next place you visit. It's all about being spontaneous.

These are maps of the Mississippi River, of the changing path of the river over time. (Harold Fisk, cartographer). Can download the high def files.
