Published by the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection, this fascinating and readable biography of the northeast's rivers fills the gap between photography books and technical reference manuals. This book integrates the biologic, geologic, hydrologic and water quality disciplines of river study, while demonstrating how human activities affect the natural river processes. The River Book covers a lot of ground from the top of the watershed to the mouth of the water course. It is the goal of this book to deliver understandable text about these subjects and everything in between. Nearly ten years in creation, The River Book is at the top of the list of river references. Dozens of color photographs, scores of tables, detailed graphics, and valuable information make this book appealing to both the casual reader and the expert alike. "A remarkable achievement in terms of overall presentation and level of information provided in an interesting and usable form." - Northeastern Naturalist. 242 pages.
