A Week on the Chunky and Chickasawhay is D.C. Berry’s log of a solo canoe expedition, one August week, down the Chunky and Chickasawhay creeks in eastern Mississippi. Along the way he recorded what happened on the creeks, the area history, and what crossed his mind pertaining to the god of that day. Saturday, for instance, is Saturn’s day, the god of the hoe and of the hoedown. Sunday, the Sun’s day, god of religion, philosophy, and of jive. Monday, the Moon’s day, god of women, children, and otherness. Tuesday, Tiu’s day, god of war, Wednesday, Wodan’s day, god of art. Thursday, Thor’s day, god of bossiness. Friday, Freyja’s day, goddess of love.

D.C. BERRY taught at the University of Southern Mississippi’s Center for Writers, where for years he was poet in residence. There he published hundreds of poems and several volumes and three times won the Excellence in Teaching Award, while being honored as a Charles W. Moorman Distinguished Professor in the Humanities. He lives in Oxford, Mississippi.
