Synopsis

Synopsis

This book is a true confluence of art and science, politics and pragmatism, ideas and plans for action. It highlights the ways in which rivers connect us all to one another. While our society has made great progress in terms of local environmental improvement, such as cleaner water, we’re still dodging the big issues, such as global warming. We have lost the vision of our planet gained in 1969 when astronauts sent back photographs taken from the moon.
Praise

Praise

“This is a powerful book. . . . It will work on your psyche the way a really good poem does.” —Valley News

“Short, elegant, and engagingly personal . . . deserves to be read in an afternoon and thought about long afterward.” — New York Review of Books

“This is an important book about seeing the main current amid the frothy rapids. Its author is not just sharp, he’s wise, and therefore often troubled, but also always redeemed. Staring into one body of water he sees reflected back the world, as it is and as it ought to be.” — Bill McKibben
