"Superbly reported and written with clarity, insight, and great skill." —Washington Post Book World After two decades, Washington Post journalist Blaine Harden returned to his small-town birthplace in the Pacific Northwest to follow the rise and fall of the West’s most thoroughly conquered river. To explore the Columbia River and befriend those who collaborated in its destruction, he traveled on a monstrous freight barge sailing west from Idaho to the Grand Coulee Dam, the site of the river’s harnessing for the sake of jobs, electricity, and irrigation. A River Lost is a searing personal narrative of rediscovery joined with a narrative of exploitation: of Native Americans, of endangered salmon, of nuclear waste, and of a once-wild river. Updated throughout, this edition features a new foreword and afterword.

In the ensuing aftermath, Jocelyn Jantz is left all alone… and pregnant with Ben Rydell’s baby. She realizes that Ben will despise her, and himself, to the end of their days. Their actions snatched their honor, something he always took the most pride in. When he disappears without a word, she’s convinced he is lost to her forever. Without a word to anyone, Ben runs east, crossing several states, trying to escape the loss he refuses to accept. But his actions only compound the tragedy. He has betrayed the woman he was first committed to, but in disappearing, he leaves behind the woman who deserves his concern now.

What is the role of water in the conversion of former industrial areas? How is water used in engaging the public to experience these sites both as physical and cultural places? Can ecological design foster the coexistence of industry and environment? The book addresses these core questions by examining the impact of the former Oregonian industry (1830-1940) on the Willamette River landscape and discussing how projects of transformation interpret the triangular interplay among industry, landscape and water.This book is a source of suggestions and ideas for scholars, students and professionals in architecture, landscape architecture, planning and their related fields who want to manage the urban landscapes successfully.
