In this well researched and passionate treatise on the much celebrated but long abused Hudson River, author Roger Stone describes how protecting New York City's drinking water supply, making innovativeefforts to safeguard views and open space, and reconnecting communities with long abandoned stretches of priceless shoreline have combined to bring about a new age of spirited restoration in a region that long seemed condemned to cultural and environmental mediocrity.Stone linksdisparate historical, cultural, political, and environmental threads to clearly show the multiple forces thathave madethis turnaroundhappen, a vivid exampleof new ideas and values for a nation struggling to counter devastating economic and environmental effects of misusing the landscape.
