A beautiful tribute to twenty rivers restored by the work of Trout Unlimited and its members. We all love rivers and the trout that the best of them hold. For fifty years, the volunteers of Trout Unlimited have strived to restore, sustain, and preserve the nation's trout and salmon waters. Weaving together human and natural histories, Ross tells the stories of twenty watersheds where Trout Unlimited has labored to save rivers damaged by human shortsightedness. From Michigan's Au Sable to New York's Delaware to rivers in California, Washington, and more, the stories of these riversboth in peril and in recoverywill remind fishermen why they love the sound of running water, and why our natural resources need to be protected. 200 color photographs.
