The Mississippi River is one of the most important waterways on earth. For nearly a century man has tried to tame it. Measuring 2,300 miles from start to end, the great river requires skill and endurance to navigate in its entirety, an accomplishment few have done.
Marcus, a scientist, ex-marine, and trash-obsessed environmentalist; Stephen, a professional angler and outdoorsman; and Bill, a filmmaker, blogger and traveler set out to travel down the river in just 30 days. National Geographic follows these three determined men on an epic journey full of twists and tribulations as they make their way down the "mighty Mississippi".
Includes: Headwater to Minneapolis, Minneapolis to Memphis, and Memphis to the Gulf.

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD Exclusives Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.
NOTE: The NG DVD-R titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
