The first comprehensive natural history guide to the Connecticut River and its environs, with more than 750 illustrations
 
The Connecticut River, New England’s longest and most historic river, originates in northern New Hampshire and wends more than four hundred miles to Long Island Sound. It forms the border between Vermont and New Hampshire and widens significantly as it makes its way through Massachusetts and Connecticut. The Connecticut River Valley is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the eastern United States, and more than two million people live in the watershed.
 
Renowned naturalist Patrick J. Lynch offers readers an expansive guide to this majestic region with more than 750 original maps, photographs, and illustrations. Organized around environments rather than particular locations, the book includes geological overviews and descriptions of common plants and animals. Lynch also explains the landscape’s environmental history as well as the effects of centuries of human interventions and the growing fallout from climate change.
 
This indispensable guide not only brings the Connecticut River’s ecology and pivotal role in American history to life but instills a deeper appreciation for the river’s diverse and abundant beauty.
