    From the earliest native inhabitants to Spanish explorers to early settlers, travelers have always followed the paths of Arkansas’s waterways. This collection includes 16 legends about Civil War artifacts, silver bullets, and collapsed mines—all set along the lakes, rivers, and streams of Arkansas.

Rooted in local detail and historical fact, these stories will engage hikers, kayakers, and armchair adventures alike.
