The Trout Pool Paradox: The American Lives of Three Rivers

The very rivers that make the best trout streams —fast, cold, clear, and beautiful—also gave birth to the industrial revolution. Through intimate portraits of early industrialists, nineteenth-century naturalists, and modern-day environmentalists and their adversaries, The Trout Pool Paradox throws brilliant light on our dynamic relationship with the natural world, what we do to rivers, and what rivers do to us.

"George Black writes with a suppleness and a breadth of vision that bring to mind John McPhee's best work." - Peter Canby, author of Heart of the Sky
