Meeting American River People

In 2014, Wes Modes and friends built a floating house, a #shantyboat made of reclaimed junk, and set off down the river. The purpose was to meet the folks who live and work along the riverbank and tell their stories in photos and interviews. The crew has been down the Mississippi and the Tennessee rivers in past summers, and plan to ride the Sacramento River this year. What they’ve found so far is in a multimedia project called A Secret History of American River People. Read about Modes’ project at Laughing Squid and see teh results of the project so far at A Secret History of American River People.
