Editorial Reviews

Review

“This excellent book will inform newcomers to the valley about the history of their new home, and it will give all readers a better understanding of how successive waves of people have interacted with and altered the natural landscapes of the area.”—Robert Gough, author of Farming the Cutover: A Social History of Northern Wisconsin, 1900–1940


“[T]he authors take a refreshingly realistic stand on the significance of their subject. That said, they convincingly claim that ‘the St. Croix Valley encapsulates the history of the Upper Midwest.’ This makes the book useful not only for interested readers and local historians but also for anyone anxious to understand the broader dynamics that shaped the region’s past.”—Michael J. Lansing, Minnesota History



“This volume presents a thorough, carefully researched and well-written history of the St. Croix River. It should be required reading for anyone charged with managing the St. Croix and its valley in the twenty-first century.”—Environmental History

Format: Paperback
North Woods River: The St. Croix River in Upper Midwest History is a natural and historical biography of the St. Croix River and its valley, over the past three hundred years. Following the interplay of human settlement and the river's environment, while drawing lessons about how to most effectively conserve and manage wild waters (which so easily fall victim to pollution), North Woods River is an eminently accessible text that both lay readers and scholars will enjoy. A handful of black-and-white photographs and diagrams illustrate this excellent addition to American history shelves.
