Pike Messenger has a way with words, and his wonderfully crafted essays envelope the reader in an exciting, and always fascinating world of water, watersheds, and the wildlife and humans who depend on these precious resources. Reading these essays is like sitting down with a close friend for a pleasant chat, which leaves you better informed and eager to learn more about the myriad ways in which nature enriches our lives.”
