John Lynn shares his paddling adventure on America's longest river -- the Missouri River -- from its origin in Montana to the Mississippi!

The sprawling, brawling Missouri River flows 2,321 miles from its origin at Three Forks, Montana, to the Mississippi River. Along the way, it has been the river of Native tribes, Lewis and Clark, traders, trappers, mountain men, homesteaders, cavalry posts, cattle barons, flatboats and steamboats, gold and silver rushes, oil and gas booms, and now sport fishermen and paddlers. Travel with John Lynn and experience the adventure of paddling all 2321 miles of "The Big Muddy" through Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri.

John Lynn of Peoria has photographed all 2,400 Illinois cities, villages, and towns. He has also hiked, biked, and canoed enough historic and scenic trails, roads, and rivers in North America and Britain to circle the globe. He has now shared his experiences with over 4,000 audiences in three countries.
