In the 1890s, a U.S. congressman argued that the U.S. had the right to seize Cuba because he believed it was made of silt washed out of the mouth of the Mississippi River which made it literally U.S. soil. The author follows the pathways of the river and the Caribbean Sea, turning that long story into a kind of prayer for the waters, the planet, and people.
