Special Edition book coverFor the past two years we have been working with Channel 9 to tell the stories in Growing Up with the River: Nine Generations on the Missouri in a one-hour documentary.

Following the history of the Missouri River Valley from the voyage of Lewis and Clark to today, Rivertowns by Channel 9 is a new film about the history of our river and our region that has been 200 years in the making.

Rivertowns premiered September 2018 on Nine PBS. This Nine Network special taps into the social, natural and cultural changes in Missouri River communities over more than two centuries. Inspired by the book, Growing Up with the River: Nine Generations on the Missouri, the film visits historical sites, the people and the beauty of the Missouri River Valley.
