From the Publisher:

Jonathan Yardley in The Washington Post, 4/28/97
"Rising Tide" is a big, ambitious book that is not merely engrossing and informative but also has the potential to change the way we think, and thus the way we act, about great rivers and the waters that run through them....This is, no kidding, breathtaking stuff;..."Rising Tide" is splendid and informative reading.
