Let the Water Do the Work is an important contribution to riparian restoration. By 'thinking like a creek', one can harness the regenerative power of floods to reshape stream banks and rebuild floodplains along gullied stream channels. 'Induced Meandering' is an artful blend of the natural sciences - geomorphology, hydrology and ecology - that govern channel-forming processes. Induced Meandering directly challenges the dominant paradigm of river and creek stabilization by promoting the intentional erosion of selected banks while fostering deposition of eroded materials on an evolving floodplain. The river self-heals as the growth of native riparian vegetation accelerates the meandering process. Anyone with an interest in natural resource management in these uncertain times should read this book and put these ideas to work.
