Tim Palmer does not merely take you on a tour of American rivers; no, he is bold about his absolute love of rivers and he invites you to share in his passion. You are going to love thumbing slowly through his lush photographs, but you are equally going to enjoy reading about his personal history with rivers and the efforts of so many to bring riparian environments back to unpolluted and free conditions. My son and I are river-lovers; and this book has been a joy for us. A wonderful map of the rivers of the US greeted us when we first opened the book, and we referred back to it over and over again as we went through the book together. This book was obviously a labor of love. I recommend it highly.
I bought this book because one of my favorite things to do is to spend time hiking and camping along rivers, away from civilization. There's something peaceful and "big picture" about spending time near a river. Gives you time to contemplate and gain perspective. What I like about this book is that it really captures the essence of getting down at the river level... different types of water and geology, different seasons. All the little details and rough edges that make rivers what they are.

Definitely not a book for the "one coffee table book" family. Go buy a National Geographic or Time Life encyclopedia for that. This book is for real photography lovers who like to explore different parts of a genre (like landscape or portrait), and see the world through the eyes of others, and for any nature lovers out there who like having a full library of nature images to enjoy.
Every page is a WOW moment - there are none that disappoint here! For anyone who likes to watch moving water AND waterfalls, this is 'the' book for you. It's also an excellent reference for painting or sewing these landscape scenes. Picture composition is top notch and careful attention was paid to the 'seasonal' influence of the pictures as well.

You cannot find a more comprehensible photo book showing gorgeous landscapes with the emphasis on the moving water aspect - the cover shot gives you a good idea of the content. The only thing possibly missing is an included cd of rushing water sounds, but then again you could buy that IF you don't already have one! Outstanding work of nature art, you will NOT be disappointed!

I also highly recommend the book 'Waterfalls & gorges of the Finger Lakes' by Derek Doeffinger, a smaller book than 'Rivers' but just as enjoyable!
grand star
This is not just another coffee table book, although I'll admit I originally bought it for the pictures. Once I dipped into the text, I realized I was reading a love story. This man has a long and intimate history with these rivers. His personal relationships and solid grasp of the science of river's make a balanced blend of anecdote and fact. I have given this volume as a gift on several occasions.
Great book to have back in our school library! Kids love it!
A beautifully photographed book of the countries rivers with an excellent text also.
It was perfect! He is very interested in rivers and lakes, and this book has kept him busy for hors on end.
An excellent book with good copy and pictures. Recommended!
