Rivers of Change

Water and Wine Series | Non-Fiction

If he was reincarnated today, Captain Meriwether Lewis could retrace the journey that his Lewis & Clark expedition made two centuries ago.  Within hours he would shake his head in confusion and surprise.  What became of the Missouri, Yellowstone and Columbia rivers that his group traveled along?  The answers come alive when told by those who live and work along these waterways.  These voices speak in the book Rivers of Change – Trailing the Waterways of Lewis and Clark. This travelogue weaves interviews, anecdotes and research that highlight how the Missouri, Yellowstone and Columbia rivers changed since Lewis and Clark explored them between 1804 and 1806.

The author spent five months moving along these rivers – driving, canoeing, rafting, even scuba diving – and interviewing dozens of people involved with waterways: barge pilots, wildlife biologists, Army Corps of Engineers staff and tribal historians.  Join the author as he shares conversations with these experts.
