River Voices: Perspectives on the Presumpscot is a celebration of a river, a vision of stewardship and caring, with chapter topics ranging from geology to Native American history to fighting for fish passage. Illustrated throughout with original and historical works of art, this book embodies the concept of managing a river through appreciation of all of its attributes and aspects. If you live in this watershed you will appreciate it. And if you live somewhere else, this is a model for caring for a river.
“If you grew up believing there was no better place to be than the nearest river or stream, this book is for you. From start to finish, it’s a reminder why rivers bring us joy and banish the humdrum of our lives. And, when you learn what the Friends of the Presumpscot River have done to heal their river, you’ll be inspired to do the same for your treasured waterways, too.”
—-Paul Gallay, Hudson Riverkeeper
