Great River : an environmental history of the upper Mississippi, 1890-1950 by Philip V Scarpino( Book )

4 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines the evolving relationship between the river and the people who lived along its shores, focusing on the period from 1890 to 1950. The analysis proceeds from the assumption that in modern urban, industrial societies, such as the United States, people have increasingly transformed the natural environment into a human artifact. Such is certainly the case with the upper Mississippi. Between the late nineteenth century and the mid-twentieth century, both the river and its valley underwent major alterations that affected both the face of the land and the underlying fabric of the original ecosystems

Large Floodplain Rivers as Human Artifacts: A Historical Perspective on Ecological Integrity( )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great floods of 1993 on the Upper Mississippi and the Missouri Rivers put rivers and their floodplains in the national spotlight. Two facts become clear: (1) Along with the tragedy the floods created came an unprecedented opportunity for reassessing the attitudes and policies that have long shaped the relations between people and rivers. (2) These floods represented the consequences of the historical interaction between people and rivers. These floods helped to emphasize that the present is a product of the past. Historical analysis suggests at least two items worth considering by those interested in managing large floodplain rivers. First, sustaining the ecological integrity of large floodplain rivers requires a clear understanding of what it is we wish to sustain. Second, ecology had its greatest effect on public opinion and public policy when it was effectively popularized by members of the scientific community and when it was bound to a set of attitudes and values that helped to define and shape the relation between people and nature. This paper provides a general look at large floodplain rivers from a historical perspective
