320 pages. Softcover. New book. RIVERS. "Everything you ever wanted to know about the Connecticut RiverÑand then some! From ancient geology, through natural and human history, to current trends and projections for the future, this atlas covers it all. An invaluable companion for any lover of this priceless (and underappreciated) resource flowing right through our midst." ÑWillem Lange, writer, television host, storyteller A lavishly illustrated, comprehensive, interdisciplinary study of the natural and human elements that comprise the Upper Connecticut River watershed Rebecca A. Brown has compiled a remarkable compendium of authoritative essays on the Connecticut River, touching on everything from its physical landscape and natural environment, to the human history, and culture that has grown up around it. This indispensable volume is the product of a remarkable partnership and years of collaboration between the Connecticut River Joint Commissions, Dartmouth College, and Northern Cartographic. Dozens of scholars, scientists, and other expertsÑall recognized as top authorities in their respective fieldsÑwere commissioned to prepare contributions related to their areas of expertise. This atlas underscores connectivity. Just as natural communities are integrated systems, so, too, are the communities of their human counterparts. The inherent ties between these natural and human worlds cannot be underestimated. This extraordinary volume succeeds brilliantly in portraying the interconnections Ñ characterizing and analyzing the relationships between these realms and challenging the reader to ponder what the future holds for them. An astounding feat of scholarship and organization, Where the Great River Rises speaks eloquently to the keen senses of history, place, and environmental awareness in the Upper Connecticut River Valley as it educates and entertains. Rebecca A. Brown is editor of this volume and Communications Director of the Connecticut River Joint Commissions.
