Artist's Description

Mark Twain
(Mural at the Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium in Dubuque, IA)

“Spirit of Dubuque” – paddleboat (Dinner Cruise)

_"It is strange how little has been written about the Upper Mississippi. The river below St. Louis has been described time and again, and it is the least interesting part. One can sit on the pilot-house for a few hours and watch the low shores, the ungainly trees and then one might as well go to bed. One has seen everything there is to see. Along the Upper Mississippi every hour brings something new. There are crowds of odd islands, bluffs, prairies, hills, woods and villages—everything one could desire to amuse the children. (It’s) the finest part of the Mississippi."
Mark Twain – interview in the Chicago Tribune
July 9, 1886
