i am so glad i have this book.... it really helps me to understand the Eco systems of Rivers.. in very down to earth language :)
"Wildstream", an up to date, thorough volume of the natural history of streams and rivers, is colorfully and articulately written by Dr. Thomas F. Waters, professor emeritus of the University of Minnesota.
Clearly a lifetime of work exhibits here his passion for understanding the history of the free flowing river and his passion for preserving natural resources. He has gone beyond his calling as a scientist, biologist, naturalist, writer, teacher ... and has proven his expertise by now sharing this wealth of knowledge with others.
This book is for all who appreciate the beauty of the river and desire to quench their thirst for understanding those "lovely living silver strands we call rivers"
This is a great book. If you go to the Riparian Press at the Rivers Council of Minnesota you can get it for only $22 and you can support the cause for which it was written. There are other good resources there too.
I reviewed this book before and the rating is wrong. It should be 5 Stars.
