Editorial Reviews

Land Stewardship Letter
This hopeful book is an invitation to make dreams come true... Half of the book is case histories, portraits of existing greenways with engaging discussions of how they came to be... The rest of the book outlines the history of the greenway movement and describes different kinds of greenways.
New York Times Book Review
Mr. Little is an enthusiastic journalist with both an eye and an ear for local history and politics... During the greenway reconnaissance, [he] found the tenacity and ingenuity that we want to believe continue to define the American character. And he provides many practical ideas for people who would follow suit.

One will not find a better guidebook to the twists and turns of this new journey than Greenways for America.

The term refers to the concept of establishing parkland along a natural corridor--riverfront, stream valley, ridgeland--or along a railroad right-of-way, canal, or scenic road. Described here are many successful examples as well as the planning, politicking, and engineering these projects require. Includes color photos, maps, and an extensive bibliography. Annotation c.
