What people are saying about Great River Arts

Your check is in the mail for payment of my last order, and I would like to order 12 more of The Father of Waters.  I am currently sold out! I didn’t even have them in my store for a week! YAY

Bought one for the office then my wife bought this one for the home.

Thanks! Great Map, fast service and a bonus gift of 2 cards. I couldn’t be happier!

Arrived on time and looks beautiful in my office. We are getting one for the house.

The map is historic & touched with beauty!! Lisa was very helpful in securing it’s safe arrival & I would gladly order from her again!
