A river that runs through Novinger in Adair county in Missouri. The Chariton is a very muddy river, resembling the Mississippi. It is small, but it makes up for its size with importance. Many crickers used to use it for a source of water and as a trade route in the early 19th century. Some people living in poverty still camp out on it's banks, as under some bridges there are remains of campfires and rugs. The Chariton is always remembered as a part of Missourian culture.
