River Life is a veritable textbook for those interested in the ecology and, in some cases, the politics of rivers in general, and the history of the Manitowish River in particular. This is not a quick read, and the story, like a river, meanders back and forth . . . Bates mixes history and biology with impressive aptitude. Each chapter, each page, is a story unto itself, and when you finally reach the end, you are left with an understanding of the broad sweep of time and distance through which the Manitowish River, and the land around it, has come. --Ted Gostomski, Executive Director North American Loon Fund
An excellent resource for presenting example of natural history and ecology or for highlighting the biodiversity of northern temperate rivers . . . Bates leads the way with tantalizing stories. --Choice, Current Reviews for Academic Libraries

I have paddled many rivers in the upper midwest, and have found the Manitowish below hwy 51 to the TFF to be one of the most beautiful river stretches I have ever been on. The book adds insight and history to this river that makes the paddle even more lovely.
