'The River Queen' Travels Down the Mississippi

After her father died at the considerable age of 102, Mary Morris set out to reconnect with his early life along the Mississippi River.

The Brooklynite asked Tom Hafner and Jerry Nelson to pilot her through Mark Twain country. Jacki Lyden talks with Morris, and her pilots, about the journey, which is chronicled in the new book The River Queen.
