"The Mississippi is well worth reading about. It is not a commonplace river, but on the contrary is in all ways remarkable. Considering the Missouri its main branch, it is the longest river in the world - four thousand three hundred miles. It seems safe to say it is also the crookedest river in the world, since in one part of its journey it uses up one thousand three hundred miles to cover the same ground that the cow would fly over in six hundred and seventy-five." And so begins this classic work."
