Praise from Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
“Living Waters explores tributaries and rivers that feed and drain to Great Lakes across New York State and down the St. Lawrence with an appreciation for their rich natural and cultural histories, and an awareness of their impact on the largest freshwater ecosystem in the world. Aldo Leopold, a guiding voice throughout, once said that the best way to nurture an environmental ethic in society is to help people see, feel, love and have faith in actual places. These river stories cultivate that intimacy.”
