    I’m in west Tennessee, about 15 miles from the east bank of the Mississippi River. I can only imagine how they must have been in awe of the father of waters. Many people cross this massive river everyday without realizing how ancient it is. Crossing the river must have been a painstaking and delicate process. The fact that they all made it across safely (with the exception of Ofi' Tohbi Ishto') is nothing less of a miracle. At times the current can get quite rough. I have been to Pinson Mounds many times, earthen mounds constructed during the Woodland period. Sauls mound, the tallest of the mounds found there, is 72 feet high and 370 feet by 300 feet at the base.. and entirely made by hand.
