Abstract:
The Green River, which is actually green when road sediment and other erosion aren't being washed in, flows through Polk and Henderson Counties. The river is narrow and swift in some places and dammed in others. The river has many faces, but fast water with many falls and cataracts provide one of its claims to fame. In this first of three articles on the river, Painter describes the land and the general aspects of the entire river.

Abstract:
A visit with Newman and Geneva Levi of Green River revealed much about the lifeways of small towns and their people. As evident by this couple, life was still often defined by wood burning stoves and canned vegetables. It was also marked by talks after the time of day still known as daydown, talk including tales of outsiders who didn’t find their visits so pleasant.
