Lifelines : the case for river conservation by Tim Palmer( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 989 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The health of our nation is reflected in the health of our rivers. These flowing waters - central to our past and vital to our future - sustain the biological wealth of the continent. Rivers are the lifelines, yet they are constantly under siege. In Lifelines, Tim Palmer addresses the fate of our waterways. While proposals for gigantic federal dams are no longer common, and some of the worst pollution has been brought under control, myriad other concerns have appeared - many of them more subtle and complex than the threats of the past. Palmer examines the alarming condition of rivers in today's world, reports on the success in restoring some of our most polluted streams and in stopping destructive dams, and builds the case for what must be done to avoid the collapse of riparian ecosystems and to reclaim qualities we cannot do without. He documents the need for a new level of awareness and suggests ways to avert the plunder of our remaining river legacy. Lifelines offers a fresh perspective on: the values of natural rivers; current threats to streams and possibilities for reform; the continuing challenge of hydropower development; water quality, instream flows, and riparian habitat; ecosystem management and watershed protection; the need for vision, hope and action. Throughout, the author stresses the biological importance of rivers. Caring for waterways as centerpieces of local ecosystems marks a starting point toward caring for the planet. Protecting the streams where we live answers the question: What can one person do amid an array of global problems and seemingly hopeless forces beyond our control or influence? Tim Palmer has explored and investigated waterways from Alaska to Florida. In this volume, he draws on personal experience and on hundreds of scientific and political sources to create an authoritative report on the state of the nation's rivers and what can be done to save them

"The outdoor enthusiast's dream bucket list is embodied in this illustrated celebration of our greatest national forests, from Alaska to Florida. For more than a century, America's national forests have proved an environmental gift and cultural treasure, our spectacular backyard. Under the management of the U.S. Forest Service, this system of public lands encompasses 193 million acres of mountains, prairies, rivers, and canyons -- much of it undiscovered, but accessible for hiking, kayaking, fishing, and winter sports. Officially published with the U.S. Forest Service, this book features the thirty most notable national forests -- while also celebrating more than one hundred different national forests in forty-four states -- from the White Mountains of New Hampshire to the Olympics of Washington. Unlike the national parks, Americans can use these lands for all manner of recreation, truly earning these tremendous resources the moniker of "America's backyard." This book is a treasure for all readers who use and cherish these lands."--provided by Amazon.com
