Ripples Of Wisdom: A Journey through Mud and Truth

Written and illustrated by Nancy Scheibe

This book details the second leg of the trip; a six-week, 634-mile journey from Red wing, Minnesota, to Saint Louis, Missouri. Woven through with Native American traditions, details of life on the water and voices of wise women. This is a rebuttal to anyone who believes that women over 50 are past their prime and an affirmation for those who know better. You'll meet Kathy, a woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer just two years prior. She overcame her illness and paddled along with the team.

Waves Of Wisdom: Grace, Guts and Gators on the Lower Mississippi

Written and illustrated by Nancy Scheibe

This book recounts the final section of the trip - a six-week, 1000-mile journey from Saint Louis, Missori, to the Gulf of Mexico. The culture of the south fills this book.

Fried foods, alligators, cotton fields, and antebellum architecture are just a few of the details described in a way that makes readers feel like they are along on this fascinating adventure. You'll meet Lucy, a woman who grew up in a one room houseboat out in the bayou.

Ripples Of Wisdom Trilogy

For her 50th birthday, Nancy Scheibe decided to paddle the Upper Mississippi River with some women friends. This innocent little trip evolved into a decade-long journey of the entire Mississippi and has touched the lives of hundreds of women who gathered at campfires along the way. In this trilogy about that Mississippi River paddling adventure you'll enjoy heart-stopping experiences, breath-taking scenery and inspiring women's stories.

"Nancy Scheibe has written books you simply must read. I found myself saying "Wow!" again and again while reading  and rereading many beautiful passages. Her mastery at weaving a story of the Mississippi, and of the lives of women she met along the way, while in the midst of living her own life to the fullest, is an act of courage and determination. We should all be so committed to a dream. Nancy has certainly shown us the rewards of doing so." ~ Karen Casey, Ph.D.,
