―John DeVoe, Executive Director of WaterWatch of Oregon
Field Guide to Oregon Rivers offers readers, travelers, and recreationalists an interpretive approach to the state’s network of waterways. The book begins with a natural history of Oregon’s rivers―geology, climate, hydrology, plants, animals, and ecology. Then in ten chapters organized by watersheds, Palmer presents portraits of individual rivers, with a summary of its character, notes about its nature and fish, and comments about ongoing threats along with protection efforts. He points to opportunities for seeing the river, hiking along its shores, fishing, and exploring by canoe, kayak, raft, or drift boat.
The guide concludes with a series of appendices addressing the Best River Running, the Best Hiking Along Rivers, the Best Fishing, Oregon’s Finest Natural Rivers, and more. With fifty illustrations identifying common riparian plants and animals, and 150 of Palmer’s award-winning photographs showcasing the variety and grandeur of Oregon’s magnificent river estate, this volume is an ideal outdoor companion for all Oregonians and visitors to the state.
