About this book

Traces the history of greenways in American cities, largely a citizen led effort, and makes suggestions for future development.

Mr. Little is an enthusiastic journalist with both an eye and an ear for local history and politics...During the greenway reconnaissance, [he] found the tenacity and ingenuity that we want to believe continue to define the American character. And he provides many practical ideas for people who would follow suit.--'New York Times Book Review' "This hopeful book is an invitation to make dreams come true...Half of the book is case histories, portraits of existing greenways with engaging discussions of how they came to be...The rest of the book outlines the history of the greenway movement and describes different kinds of greenways."--'Land Stewardship Letter'"One will not find a better guidebook to the twists and turns of this new journey than 'Greenways for America'."--'Wilderness'
