The delta of the Rio Grande is a land shared by two great nations. In Mexico, it is known as el Rio Bravo del Norte. North of the border, it is called the Rio Grande. From Falcon Dam, the river flows toward the Gulf of Mexico through a gradually spreading flood plain or delta. Steamboats once fought the swift current far upriver. In many ways the destiny of North America was forged along its banks. El Valle takes you on a visual journey through the delta, exploring the rich biodiversity and culture that has taken root along its banks.

Review:

A Christmas gift to treasure - By Eileen Mattei

"El Valle: the Rio Grande Delta" is a sumptuous, large format book of stunning photos and expert insights published by the Gorgas Science Foundation. The 360-degree portrait of the Rio Grande Valley, presented in alternating pages of Spanish and English, shows clearly how rich in assets the border is, from the land and the people to the plants and animals. Photographer and Book Manager Seth Patterson and Executive Editor Lawrence Lof celebrate and explain the biological and cultural crossroads we inhabit. The 284 pages of "El Valle" brim with a wealth of details on the Valley's natural history and cultural heritage. In concise chapters, 28 experts cover topic that range from archeology and border brick architecture to Charro Days, clay dunes, and Brownsville's cemetery, from the sail-powered fisheries of a century ago to the rare hypersaline ecosystem of the Laguna Madre. Photographer and writer Patterson has done an award-worthy job. Never before has the full spectrum of the Valley's bountiful diversity been seen in the pages of a single publication."
