This is a must read, especially for those who love the outdoors, those who care about climate change and what it means for our future, or those who worry about ecosystems and the impact humans can have on natural environments. Downriver is the type of book that makes you feel smarter while you read, but is also hard to put down because you are eagerly waiting to find out what happens next on Heather's journey.
Read it - you won't be disappointed.
Heather’s writing does a remarkable job detailing the complexities behind water use in the Colorado River Basin in a methodical yet easy to follow narrative. She couples this with her personal accounts of her solo pack raft down the Green River while exploring the livelihoods along its banks, local water dependent industry, the ecosystems being impacted, and the role climate change is playing.
For someone who thought they knew a fair amount about water conservation and global climate change, this book was an eye opener for me. It peeled back the curtain and humanized the current issues and struggles the west is facing. Makes me want to reduce my footprint and contribute to finding a solution to these problems. If you care about the future of this planet, this page turner should be on your list, you won’t be disappointed. Well done Heather!
