Dustjacket has light age tanning, light scuffing and very light edgewear, no tears. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; “For those with eyes to see, a river can be a living link with our past. ” In this unique blend of history and reminiscence, Andy Russell tells the story of the Oldman River, running east from the Rocky Mountains. He recalls his personal encounters with the land and the people; the astonishing role this area has played since the Ice Age as the only ice-free passage on the continent; the ancient peoples who lived and hunted along its shores; the coming of the first white explorers, and then settlers; and finally, the dam that will destroy the river. Part memoir, part history, part passionate defence of nature, this book is an “emotional and fascinating tale” (Saskatoon Star-Phoenix). (465not,0514)
