Wild and Scenic Rivers
An American Legacy
By Tim Palmer
Oregon State University Press
The rivers of North America flow from mountains, forests, and grasslands with astonishing beauty, while the water and its pathways across the land are essential to all life. Many of the best of these streams have been safeguarded under the US National Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968. Author and photographer Tim Palmer has captured the splendor and essence of these rivers with his camera and has written the history of this exquisite suite of waterways the way no one else could do. Wild and Scenic Rivers reveals, informs, celebrates, and brings these vital scenes to life with 160 color photos.
Tim Palmer is the author of twenty-six books about rivers, the American landscape, and adventure travel. He has received the National Outdoor Book Award and the Lifetime Achievement Award from American Rivers, among other honors.
