From Wayne State University Press:

With its long reputation as a polluted and degraded river in the industrial heartland, the Detroit River has been identified by the International Joint Commission as a Great Lakes Area of Concern with impaired beneficial uses. Yet the river has undergone a dramatic rehabilitation, and in July 1998 it was designated by Presidential Executive Order as one of 14 American Heritage Rivers in the United States. The Detroit Riverórunning 51 kilometers and linking Lake St. Clair to Lake Erieóserves as an invaluable and multifaceted community resource for economic development, environmental stewardship, and historical preservation.
Honoring Our Detroit River looks at key aspects of the riverís history and impact on the surrounding ecosystem since its formation some 14,000 years ago. Unique environmental stories highlight the Detroit Riverís significant progress and help readers to learn more about this valuable resource and to care for it as their home.
