About this book

Whether tracing the history of hydropower development on the Niagara River or describing the search for a wizard's cave in the Zoar Valley, Margaret Wooster's Living Waters offers a fascinating, first-person exploration of water. A watershed planner with Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper, Wooster canoes, portages, camps beside, and wades into eight Great Lakes watersheds across New York State and Quebec. And she returns with her pockets full of original stories from these beautiful, boggy, and prehistoric waterways: a portrait of an urban creek in Buffalo, New York; the origins and demise of New France on the St. Lawrence; the effects of acid rain on the lakes that feed the tributary rivers of the Adirondack cloudlands. In a manner similar to the famed conservationist Aldo Leopold, Wooster helps us to see, feel, understand, and love the rivers that impact our world's largest freshwater ecosystem.
