Despite what is often a conspicuous lack of water, the Arkansas River is the third largest river in the state. A Kansas college professor recently floated down — or in some cases, walked — the length of the river, more than 700 miles of it. Commentator Rex Buchanan tells us about the new book that chronicles this adventure.
Commentator Rex Buchanan is director emeritus of the Kansas Geological Survey at the University of Kansas. He was reviewing the book, Elevations: A Personal Exploration of the Arkansas River, by Max McCoy, published by University Press of Kansas.
Max McCoy is professor of journalism and director of the Center for Great Plains Studies at Emporia State University.
Max McCoy will read from his newest book, “Elevations: A Personal Exploration of the Arkansas River,” on Sunday, May 20th at 2:00 p.m. at the Pittsburg Public Library. The event is free and open to the public.
