ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Don't you love looking at coffee table books? So many of them have spectacular photos, compelling stories, and one-of-a-kind authors.
Now there's a coffee-table style book called "Missouri River Country" that shows off a subject close to home: the Missouri River Valley. It weaves together the stories of Lewis and Clark, Daniel Boone, wine history, the Katy Trail, St. Louis chefs. It's a great brag on the history, landscape and architecture of our own back yard.
Gerard Craft, owner of Niche, Pastaria, Brasserie, and Taste, and Kevin Nashan, owner of Sidney Street Café are two of the book's contributors. They joined First @ 4 on Tuesday to talk about the book.
