Description:
Softcover, 352 pp, 6.125 x 9.25. By canoe, raft, and on foot, Tim Palmer explores the river from its highest spring to its industrial end. He writes about the people, about the shaping of the land, and the land's inevitable shaping of the people-from afternoon visitors to eighth generation natives. Strip mining, land development, and recreation management are explored. Includes maps and sixty photographs.
