Overview
The photographs in The Connecticut River follow this major waterway for 410 miles, from its origin near the Canadian border to its wide mouth on Long Island Sound, giving us a vivid portrait of a living artery of the New England landscape. Author and photographer Al Braden opens the book with an essay introducing important aspects of the river, and then presents 136 full-page color photos, ranging from close-ups to dramatic aerials, to reveal the river as few people are privileged to experience it. Readers will see and learn about the landscape, history, development, conservation, geologic formations, wildlife, flora, and, of course, the moods of the water, sky, and riverbank. Informative captions provide a wealth of information about the images, from pristine misted mornings to rich valley farmlands and modern hydroelectric turbines. Together, the images and text provide a poignant look at the river and document its centrality to the development of the unique character of New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Connecticut. Includes select bibliography and list of resources.
