Praise for In the Realm of Rivers

About the Book
A treat for the senses: imagery, poetry and oral history combine to conjure the mystery of where we all need to be, at least once in a lifetime. Thanks to In the Realm of Rivers, with its enticing photos by Holt, and Walker’s elegant text, we can all enjoy this resource, our delta, in a way never before possible.
The Mobile-Tensaw Delta is part of Alabama's history, providing an ecosystem rich in animal and plant species and, like most such systems, is currently threatened by urban development. Prose, poetry and non-fiction narrative by Sue Walker blends research -- interviews with scientists, historians and preservationists as well as hunters -- with Dennis Holt's stunning color photos of animals and nature to provide a fitting tribute to the lasting importance of Alabama's Mobile-Tensaw Delta region.
