Map showing area covered by the report and various maps.
Included as part of the 60 maps above are the 15 maps of the "Ancient Meanderings of the Mississippi" which are detailed below.
One of the nice surprises from this report are a series of 15 maps that show the ancient meanderings of the Mississippi. Here are all fifteen maps, stretching from southern Illinois to southern Louisana. OIt was his best attempt at tracking the meanderings of the Mississippi’s present and past bends, visualized as gorgeous maps.
A river doesn’t stay still. As it flows it carves out new paths in a route towards its ultimate destination. Over time, the bends and curves of what seems like river snakes coiling around one another. By looking at the geologic evidence, you can see the paths a river once took like looking at the past lives of the waters, the river’s ghosts.
The maps, scanned at high resolution and full scale, are some of the most beautiful I've seen. They are "nature's art" and make excellent display maps.
At top, the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers as seen by Google Earth. On the bottom, the confluence as seen by Harold  Fisk (1944).
Details of the maps.
Included are the 15 maps oriented to one another.
