This Nine Network special film taps into the social, natural and cultural changes in Missouri River communities over more than two centuries. Inspired by the book, Growing Up with the River: Nine Generations on the Missouri (by Dan and  Connie Burkhardt/Illustrated by Bryan Haynes), the film visits historical sites, the people and the beauty of the Missouri River Valley.

You can learn more about the landscape and stories along the last 100 miles of the Missouri River at the showing on August 26, 2019 at St. John’s United Church of Christ in Cappeln, on Monday, August 26th at 7:00 PM.
