Praise For Field Guide to Oregon Rivers

"Many of North America’s truly great rivers flow in and through Oregon. This book is an essential tool for anyone who paddles, fishes, explores and wants to understand the natural history—and challenges—facing these amazing waterways. Thanks to Tim Palmer, now we have a field guide worthy of Oregon’s rivers."
—John DeVoe, Executive Director of WaterWatch of Oregon
