The Trout Pool Paradox, Black, George
4 Black, GeorgeThe Trout Pool Paradox; 0618310800 / 9780618310807, 
2004 Houghton Mifflin Co.; 1st Ed, 1st Printing
As New book 8vo - (7¾ - 9¾ tall) Hardcover, in As New DJ
(Synopsis) The Trout Pool Paradox unravels a conundrum: why does the Naugatuck River teeter on the edge of extinction, while in a parallel valley just a few miles away, the Shepaug appears to flow in a pristine state? Probing this puzzle takes George Black deep into the complex ecology of rivers and into the heart of the human communities on their banks. Presenting intimately detailed stories of early industrialists, nineteenth-century naturalists, and contemporary river stewards and their adversaries, The Trout Pool Paradox throws brilliant light on our dynamic relationship with nature and on the conflicting demands we will make on our waterways in a postindustrial age., C0181.

Mountain in the Clouds: A Search for the wild Salmon, Brown, Bruce
5 Brown, BruceMountain in the Clouds: A Search for the wild Salmon; 0671435833 / 9780671435837, 
1982 Simon & Schuster; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingInscribed by the Author
Very Good book 8vo - (7¾ - 9¾ tall) Hardcover, in Very Good DJ
(Description) Inscribed by the Author to Dave Hughes in 1984. Light edgewear to book and a couple dog-eared pages. Jacked has edgewear and small closed tears, spine sunned. ***(Synopsis) It is now more than ten years since Bruce Brown began the Olympic Peninsula wanderings that led him to write this powerful account of how greed, indifference and environmental mismanagement have threatened the survival of the wild Pacific salmon and, as a result, the region's ecology and its people. Acclaimed by critics who likened it to Coming Into the Country by John McPhee and Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, Mountain in the Clouds has become a classic of natural history. As the struggle to protect Northwest salmon runs and the urgency of the fight against environmental deterioration escalates, Mountain in the Clouds remains an important and illuminating story, as timely now as when it was first written., C2278.

The Stream, Clarke, Brian
13 Clarke, BrianThe Stream; 1585675288 / 9781585675289, New Book
2004 Overlook Press; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
Near Fine 8vo Hardcover, in Near Fine DJ
(Synopsis) Apart from a few protesters, the announcement of an industrial pak in a depressed rural area is widely welcomed. It promises new jobs and new hope for those who live there. A few miles away, in a small valley with a stream running through it, ownership of a farm passes from father to son. Over time, these two events take their toll. The pressures are felt most powerfullly in the stream itself, as, little by little, the creatures that live in it are sucked into a mute and unseen struggle for survival. With grace and objectivity, and with a narrative rhythm echoing the patterns of nature, The Stream records the consequences of environmental degradation from the inside. As The Times (London) wrote, this is a devastatingly effective novel which ought to be required reading for schoolchildren, government ministers, businessmen, enironmentalists, and anyone else who has an interest in the environment., AB00183.

Freshwater Fish: The Natural History of Over 160 Native European Species, Greenhalgh, Malcolm
16 Greenhalgh, MalcolmFreshwater Fish: The Natural History of Over 160 Native European Species; 1840001445 / 9781840001440, New Book
1999 Mitchell Beazley; 1st Edition
Near Fine 8vo Hardcover, in Near Fine DJ
***(Synopsis) European lakes, rivers, reservoirs and canals are home to a huge number of fish species. In this book, Malcolm Greenhalgh explores over 160 species, from primitive lamprey to the Atlantic salmon and from the massive sturgeon to the tiny guppy. Understanding fish is the key to finding them, and the author therefore explains the appearance, range, habitat, courtship, breeding, life-cycle and feeding behaviour of each species. The book is organized by fish family and closely related species are grouped together, so that minor differences in appearance or behaviour can be easily recognized. The author also explores the conservation issues that threaten fish throughout Europe, including the effects of introducing fish to areas where they would not occur naturally, as well as pollution and over-fishing., AB01291.

An Entirely Synthetic Fish, Halverson, Anders
18 Halverson, AndersAn Entirely Synthetic Fish; 0300140878 / 9780300140873, New Book
2010 Yale University Press; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
Near Fine 8vo Hardcover, in Near Fine DJ
(Synopsis) Anders Halverson provides an exhaustively researched and grippingly rendered account of the rainbow trout and why it has become the most commonly stocked and controversial freshwater fish in the United States. Discovered in the remote waters of northern California, rainbow trout have been artificially propagated and distributed for more than 130 years by government officials eager to present Americans with an opportunity to get back to nature by going fishing. Proudly dubbed ?an entirely synthetic fishö by fisheries managers, the rainbow trout has been introduced into every state and province in the United States and Canada and to every continent except Antarctica, often with devastating effects on the native fauna. Halverson examines the paradoxes and reveals a range of characters, from nineteenth-century boosters who believed rainbows could be the saviors of democracy to twenty-first-century biologists who now seek to eradicate them from waters around the globe. Ultimately, the story of the rainbow trout is the story of our relationship with the natural world. How it has changed and how it startlingly has not., AB00741.
