About this book

A thoroughly modern natural history, blending keen observations of the nature of the Delaware's enduring complex of river, glacial streams, marshlands, and forest with glimpses of history and folklore and with luminous portraits of those whose lives are sustained by the river. `Evoking the past as he contemplates the present, Stutz is an eloquent advocate for the river and the region's preservation.' Publishers Weekly

Piquant, and uncommonly eloquent.-Kirkus Reviews "Stutz is an eloquent advocate for the river and the region's preservation."-Publishers Weekly
