Running the River


A Kilgore, Texas, native is out with a book that unlocks the mystery of the murky Sabine River that snakes through the Piney Woods of East Texas. 

Running the River: Secrets of the Sabine” is an outgrowth of a newspaper series penned by then-reporter Wes Ferguson of the Longview News Journal. Ferguson, and photographer Jacob Croft Botter, traveled the river in a loaner boat, apprehensive of logjams and intrigued by the people who live on the water.
