Save our river. (Books).
To Save A River (Aperture, in association with the Coastal Mountains Land Trust, $50), tells an extraordinary story about the conservation of Maine's Ducktrap River, home of one of the last remaining salmon runs in the eastern United States. An informative narrative by Scott Dickerson animates the dazzling 80 platinum photographs. He explains why conservation efforts have yielded preservation for many species, including the Atlantic salmon. Traveling through seasonal changes, environmental photographer Dennis C. Schultz takes the reader through a journey through the Ducktrap River watershed, offering stunning images of waterfalls, ponds and conifers blanketed with softly fallen snow. To Save A River captures the rare beauty of this precious Maine treasure.--R.B.
