An essential guide Sep 3, 2008
Wisconsin's river systems have been critical to the state's developmental history and continue to provide irreplaceable economic and recreational resources fundamentally necessary to insure the prosperity of the Badger State. Ranging from minor tributaries to major thoroughfares, Wisconsin's reviewers were the produce of glaciation and geologic conditions that helped to shape the landscape as we know it today. They served as transport Native American systems that were readily adopted and exploited by European settlers. They served as energy, food, commerce, and recreational sources and today offer memorable recreation experiences and essential ecological supports. In "Wisconsin Underground" Wisconsin author and academician Doris Green explored Wisconsin's caves and cave systems. Now in "Explore Wisconsin Rivers" she turns her expert attention to the beauty and history of Wisconsin's rivers and rivers systems in terms of both their history and their beauty. Personally traveling hundreds of miles of Badger State rivers, exploring their natural and cultural aspects, Doris Green (with the assistance of Michael H. Knight) has produced an informed and informative travel guide perfect for planning a recreational itinerary for enjoying what Wisconsin rivers have to offer. The format is the grouping of rivers according to which body of water they ultimately pour into. Section one offers four rivers emptying into Lake Superior; Section two showcases six rivers emptying into Lake Michigan; Section tree describes nine rivers running to the Mississippi and the Gulf of Mexico. Enhanced with occasional black-and-white photography, "Explore Wisconsin Rivers" is enthusiastically recommended as an essential guide for anyone interested in Wisconsin's river systems and is a core addition to both academic and community library Wisconsin Studies & History reference collections.
