Ol’ Man River – A Journey Along the Mighty Mississippi – Part 2: The Two Rivers | Nature Documentary Watch ‘Ol’ Man River – A Journey Along the Mighty Mississippi – Part 1′ here: The Mississippi is a river of superlatives. Its catchment area is the size of the Indian subcontinent, and with its approximately 3,800 kilometer long course, the ‘Ol’ Man River’ is the third longest river on earth. Its swamps and bayous are home to spectacular wildlife and plant life, but it is way more than that. It embodies the myth of the United States like no other: the struggle of becoming a nation, the conquest of the wilderness, the opening up of the Wild West, the demise of the Indigenous peoples, the suffering of the slaves. From its mouth in the Gulf of Mexico to its headwaters in Lake Itasca in Minnesota, from the once rich nature on the banks of the Mississippi to the overpopulated megacities of the present day, the arc of this journey through time spans the true nature of America’s most famous river from the perspective of its discoverers. Viewers will experience the great moments in the history of the discovery of the Mississippi and its largest tributary, the Missouri, as well as encounter the most remarkable animals of the USA – bison, prairie dogs, red wolves or mighty wapiti deer. Underwater, the Mississippi River is home to manatees and giant alligators, as well as prehistoric fish giants such as bonefish and paddlefish. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Subscribe Free Documentary – Nature Channel for free: Facebook: Twitter: ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ #FreeDocumentaryNature #Documentary #Mississippi ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Free Documentary is dedicated to bring high-class documentaries to you on youtube for free.
