In 1996 Steven Faulkner and his sixteen-year-old son Justin left the fast world of cars, jobs, schools, radios, televisions, and computers and set out on a thousand-mile voyage in their sixteen-foot canoe, Natty Bumpo. They followed the route first taken in 1673 by the early French explorers Joliet and Marquette to discover the Upper Mississippi River-300 miles
along Lake Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, 300 miles across the entire state of Wisconsin and finally south on the Mississippi River and floated down the Big Muddy 400 miles to St. Louis. Waterwalk is a triple journey: a journey into the heart of this continent 300 years ago, a modern exploration of the quiet waterways that weave their way through busy, rush-around America, and a voyage through the heart of a father-son relationship. Steven Faulkner teaches Creative Writing at Longwood University. A movie based on his book “Waterwalk: A Passage of Ghosts” is being produced by Michigan Blue Lake Productions.
