Elwha: A River Reborn – Book Release
Save Our wild Salmon is pleased to serve as a community co-sponsor for the Spring 2013 Book Tour of Elwha: A River Reborn by Seattle Times reporter Lynda V. Mapes - with a series of evening events in the Pacific Northwest.
With text and photos, Elwha examines the damming and restoration of the Elwha River originating in the wild, protected mountains of Olympic National Park on Washington State's Olympic Peninsula.
See further information below - with dates and locations. Please check back here regularly, as the information will be updated.
Featuring national award-winning science reporting from The Seattle Times and published by The Mountaineers Books, Elwha: A River Reborn is based on extensive interviews, field work, copious historical research and rare period images, and photography conducted over 16 years and continuing today. Getting cold, wet, and dirty, author Lynda Mapes and photographer Steve Ringman made countless trips into the backcountry of the mountains of the Olympic National Park with scientists, local residents, conservationists, and Elwha Tribal people to explore the Elwha River Valley from a range of perspectives.
Evening events will feature readings by Lynda Mapes, a slide show of Steve Ringman photographs, and a question-and-answer session. Books will be available for purchase and signing by the author.
The book can be purchased online at The Mountaineers Books website.
