QUINCY — Author Robert Turek recently release of his latest book, “Magic of the Mississippi,” a coloring and trivia book dedicated to America’s Greatest River. It is now available on Amazon books.

“Magic of the Mississippi” showcases historic river towns along the river to structures built for transportation through hand-illustrated coloring pages created for all ages. More than 20 single-sided coloring pages are included, as well as trivia facts to learn more about the Mississippi River.

Detailed coloring and trivia pages feature historic river cities such as:

Turek hopes his book inspires others to value the importance of the Mississippi River, including its wildlife, history and importance to the nation. 

“My hope is that through this book it will encourage others to envision the river as more than a river,” he said in a press release. “It’s a place of great importance to our country.  My love of conservation and preserving history is captured in the pages of this book so as to inspire others to love the river as much as I do.”
