When Mark Campbell was a boy growing up in Waynesboro, the James River was quite different than it is today. He shares a humorous tale of a river adventure he took as a boy scout, the fear he felt about potentially falling in, and the appreciation he has for how far the river’s health has improved.

Mark also highlights the unique role of batteau boats in the James’ long history, and how musicians traveling on batteaus found special connection and camaraderie through their journeys along the river.
