This is a fantastic book that makes you want to punch generations of ignorant frontiersmen, miners, farmers and engineers of the past and present in the face for their vast destruction of landscapes. Wohl covers a wide range of topics over the past few centuries and updates the readers on the current state of river restoration and rehabilitation efforts. She is clearly one of those special human beings that is exerting a lot of effort to bring her accumulated knowledge of a suite of scientific fields to a public that typically is not privy to such information. Great read (especially for the non-hydrologist).
