Susquehanna, River of Dreams

In Susquehanna, River of Dreams award-winning journalist Susan Q. Stranahan tells the sweeping story of one of America's great rivers – ranging in time from the Susquehanna's geologic origins to the modern threats to its eco-system, describing human settlements, industry and pollution, and recent efforts to save the river and its "drowned estuary," the Chesapeake Bay. The result is a unique natural history of the vast Susquehanna watershed and a compelling look at environmental issues of national importance.

Reviews

"Susan Q. Stranahan could well know more about the present natural state of the Susquehanna River and its 27,500-square-mile watershed than anyone... She has written a fine book, well-researched and detailed, a thrilling account."

- Richard L. Stanton - Philadelphia Inquirer

"An eminently readable, nicely researched tour de force that goes on my must-reading list for anyone interested in knowing the Chesapeake Bay."

- Tom Horton - Baltimore Sun

"This excellent book about the Susquehanna River is as good as, and maybe better than, the celebrated Rivers of America series books... Much more comprehensive than most river histories published before the recent rise of concern about dangerous water pollution."
