“If you are planning to take the Great River Road along the Mississippi River…be sure to take along these new travel guides by Dean Klinkenberg… Actually, the books are entertaining to read without leaving your chair.”

“Hey, Just found, read and finished your Lansing to Le Claire. Being a 78 year old that has followed the Mississippi, up and down, all my life, I thought I had little more to learn about the cities, villages and crossroads along the river. Not So! Absolutley loved your book. Great history, great descriptions, great humor. Just top notch!
Thanks for the great writing.
