Northwest Passage: The Great Columbia River

by William Dietrich Author

This book is a comprehensive adn complex study of the Columbia river that combines natural history, political history, and human history with a consideration of current environmental and social issues. This case study of the Columbia river considers conceptual topics like the economics of resource extraction, hydropower politics, indigeneous rights, and the more apparent features like pollution, the state of the river's damns and infrastructure, and the health of its salmon runs.
