About the Author

David James Duncan, author of The River Why, has been nominated for two Pushcart Prizes and has won a Montana Arts Council Award. He lives in Montana.


"There's an engaging coherence to Duncan's 22 angry, heartbroken, yet hopeful and often quite comic nature essays.... Sounding a clarion call to conservation activism, Duncan eloquently explains why clean, free running water matters: just as we die without good water, so does the earth. Yet his unabashed polemic is nicely cushioned by rhapsody; he's the ranter as poet."-Publishers Weekly "Refreshing as a glass of cold water on a scorching day.... Duncan invites, includes, intrigues, and inculcates his readers so that they will never think of the Pacific Northwest, salmon, Montana, or Nevada gold mines as they did before."-Library Journal "Original, skillful, and funny as hell."-Ian Frazier
