summary
“Belongs in the traveling bag of every Minnesotan and every visitor.” St. Paul Pioneer Press “Thoroughly researched and delightfully written. Human history and the landscape are intertwined, and Waters traces that connection with precision.” Minnesota History Canoeists, fishermen, and all those who care about Minnesota’s flowing waters will find this a useful guide to the rivers of the state. Thomas Waters describes the geologic origins of each river and the fish, wildlife, and plants that depend on the river ecosystem. The book follows routes of the early travelers, Native Americans, fur traders, and settlers, as well as explaining what the modern explorer might find on Minnesota’s rivers. Waters discusses the economic and recreational values of the river system and argues for wise management of this rich resource. ISBN 0-8166-0960-8
