Rate this:
"Beautiful hardback about New Zealand's major rivers, featuring text from natural historian David Young and stunning photography from Aliscia Young. David tells the often complex story of each river or river system through the people who interact with that river, both historically and in modern times. This new book examines the situation for our rivers today; it looks at what has happened to our rivers over recent years and what is happening today; it discusses the positives and the negatives, and it looks at the challenges our waterways face now and in the future. As well as being a celebration of our beautiful rivers, it also focuses on conservation aspects, with commentary on dairying pollution, ecology, conservation orders and Maori claims. River is a heavily revised and rewritten version of Faces of the River by David Young and Bruce Foster, published in 1986."--Publisher's description.
