This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of the Mississippi River that you might want to check out.

A handsome Albert Ruger birdseye map of the town of Cairo, Illinois [gmap]... a boomtown gone bust in ways that mirror my own beloved town of St. Louis, writ small.

I've long wanted to visit Cairo, and I'll do so one of these days. I've been reading about it for years, now.
