The River Will Be a Part of Us

It was the summer of Princess Diana’s wedding, “Bette Davis Eyes” and “Jessie’s Girl.” In June of 1981, I met some college friends in a public park just outside Kansas City, where we built a 16’x24′ raft from assorted lumber, cottonwood, a telephone pole, and thirty-two 55-gallon oil drums. Ten days later, the crew of eight launched the “Eulenspiegel” and floated 1,420 miles down the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, propelled only by the river current and four 10-foot-long deck-mounted oars. Two months later, we arrived in New Orleans.

This Fall, Daylight Books will publish my photographic monograph about the journey of the Eulenspiegel and its crew. The 6″x 9″ hardcover book, “The River Will Be a Part of Us,” will be available worldwide. I’ll post more details here as they become available. In the meantime, feel free to visit Daylight Books’ website to see the extraordinary range of art books that they have to offer:
