Books: Wild and Scenic Rivers, An American Legacy
To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, my friend Tim Palmer wrote this masterpiece full of information and photos about America's Wild and Scenic Rivers. In addition to Tim's eloquent prose it contains beautiful photos, a Wild and Scenic Rivers map, and appendices full of fun and interesting facts.
It is both a beautifully presented coffee table book and a textbook about the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. There are 160 photos that showcase Wild and Scenic Rivers around the United States along with history and detail about how and why these rivers became protected. This is a must-have book for river runners, commercial river guides, and anyone who loves rivers.
"This book was written with the belief that knowing the past can help guide the future."Tim Palmer
Tim Palmer is uniquely qualified to write this book. He's an author and photographer who loves rivers and spends more time floating our nation's rivers than anyone I know.
