In late summer and early autumn, New England rivers once flashed with thousands of wild Atlantic salmon returning to spawn in their home waters. Sadly, this stirring sight is no more due to the depredations of man. Ducktrap River is one of only eight rivers in the United States that still has a wild population of Atlantic salmon. In 1995 the Ducktrap Coalition formed to protect the natural attributes for the river's watershed, resulting in the permanent conservation of eighty-percent of a land abutting the river - an accomplishment unmatched by any coastal river of the eastern United States. The luminous, ethereal images in this book capture a magnificent river in all its pristine glory - serene ponds, rushing waterfalls, misty wetlands - giving the reader a uniquely beautiful anatomy of a river. These photographs are evidence of an extraordinary conservation effort along the river throughout its watershed.
