The Hudson Riverby Melissa Whitcraft
The Hudson River starts as a stream in the Adirondack Mountains and ends as the largest freshwater estuary in the United States. This book follows the course of the river, showing how the Hudson changes and how civilization tapped into the river, particularly during the industrial expansion in the nineteenth century. While the author traces interesting historical dates and events, she also describes the wetlands and fascinating ecological facts, as well as pointing out current problems facing the Hudson River with pollution and what is being done to handle it.
