This photographic essay tells the story of Maine's Ducktrap River, which, while not especially large, stands out as one of only eight rivers in the United States that still has a wild population of Atlantic salmon. The area is also the beneficiary of a highly successful conservation effort coordinated by the Coastal Mountains Land Trust. Environmental photographer Schultz spent three years documenting the Ducktrap watershed, and his collection of platinum images documents Ducktrap's history and restoration. Dickerson, the executive director of the Land Trust, contributed the accompanying essays. In contrast to similar books on environmental issues, this one celebrates a success story. By working together, conservation groups, state and federal agencies, local governments, citizen groups, and landowners have assured that fully 81 percent of the land along the river will be permanently conserved. Of interest to river enthusiasts, conservationists, and photographic artists and essential for regional libraries.

Book Description 
  
In late summer and early fall, New England rivers once flashed with thousands of wild Atlantic salmon returning to spawn in their home waters. Sadly, this stirring sight is no more due to the depredations of man. Maine's little-known Ducktrap River is one of only eight rivers in the United States that still have a wild population of Atlantic salmon. In 1995 the Ducktrap Coalition formed to protect the natural attributes of the river's watershed, resulting in the permanent conservation of eighty percent of the land abutting the river-an accomplishment unmatched in any coastal river of the eastern United States. 
  
 
  
The luminous, ethereal images in this book capture a magnificent river in all its pristine glory-serene ponds, rushing waterfalls, misty wetlands-giving the reader a uniquely beautiful anatomy of a river. These photographs are evidence of an extraordinary conservation effort along the river and throughout its watershed.
