From the Publisher“Everything you ever wanted to know about the Connecticut River—and then some! From ancient geology, through natural and human history, to current trends and projections for the future, this atlas covers it all. An invaluable companion for any lover of this priceless (and underappreciated) resource flowing right through our midst.” —Willem Lange, writer, television host, storyteller
"Like other atlases, this is not a book easily devoured in one sitting. It is better enjoyed as a resource, for resolving arguments during dinner, researching school projects, or satisfying idle curiosity. Regardless, it will provide many hours of satisfaction. And it should help restore the mighty Connecticut to its rightful place at the heart of the Twin States."—Northern Woodlands
"Stunning . . . so much information about the upper Connecticut River region has never been gathered so comprehensively in one place, with a user-friendly index and a bibliography to guide further study . . . For residents and visitors who love the river, and those who just want to learn more about it, this is the reference book you have been waiting for."
"The maps in this atlas are useful, but the real strength of Where the Great River Rises is the informational text along with the excellent photographs and figures. ... this is an excellent resource for people interested in the upper Connecticut River . . . Highly recommended." —Choice
