Life on the River

Life on the River

(p.69) Chapter Seven Life on the River
Water in Kentucky

Jamey Wiglesworth

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter illustrates what it means to live on and with a river, in this case, working, playing, and experiencing the joys and occasional hardships of life on the Kentucky River. The author describes the pace of life as leisurely and peaceful, a place of transcendence. The river provides a place to play and socialize with friends and family, and a place to experience a unity with nature.
