    PDF/EPUB pamyatnik.pro ï Original Highways PDF/EPUB ¼ original ebok, highways free, Original Highways MOBIMacGregor's book is broken into chapters about rivers in Canada Because MacGregor is journalist the style is a pastiche of personal stories and his encounters with people who live or work on the rivers in uestion and how they all need to be saved from misuse I really wanted to like this book than I actually did probably because it is such a great idea But sadly the style and content was repetitive without offering any real substantive information about the rivers themselves I was hoping for a little geographical information about each rivers detailed maps would have helped and how the rivers played an important part in the development of the country Too often these details were ignored in favour of uick reportage

    PDF/EPUB pamyatnik.pro ï Original Highways PDF/EPUB ¼ original ebok, highways free, Original Highways MOBIThis is a fairly decent ecological overview of the importance of water for not just the great country of Canada but the world at large I will admit that at one point the book tempted parody Here is River X While it is very beautiful mankind's intrusion caused it to be polluted affecting in particular the livelihood of First Nation Fortunately wiser souls have prevailed and River X while it will never achieve its status of its heyday is at least recoveringBut there are a couple of chapters near the end that refute this two that have held up over time relatively well The latter of which is the source of a very humorous story involving Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau EDIT I will agree with other reviewers that some detailed maps would have been extremely helpful But at least we have Google Maps

    PDF/EPUB pamyatnik.pro ï Original Highways PDF/EPUB ¼ original ebok, highways free, Original Highways MOBIShort portraits of sixteen Canadian rivers although the piece on the Columbia River dealt almost exclusively with the American portion of the river Several of the rivers I was unaware of or only vaguely familiar with — the Dumoine the Muskoka the Gatineau and Don — and there were bits of history and and background in each section that were interestingThe lack of maps cost the book a star and the photos were mostly of people standing in front of what I wanted to see I was able to fill in some of the blanks with Google Maps and ImagesMacGregor references THE DEATH AND LIFE OF THE GREAT LAKES by Dan Egan in his section on the St Lawrence and MIGHTY RIVER by Richard C Bocking in his section on the Fraser both excellent reads
