What's Your story?

I just read For the Love of Rivers by Kurt Fausch. It came out a couple years ago when I was a postdoc, but I just got around to reading it because, as it turns out, postdocs don’t have a whole lot of spare time for leisure reading. For the Love of Rivers describes the intellectual (and physical) journey of a scientist as he pursues questions held by rivers—questions that grow increasingly deeper as each is answered. And not just any scientist—Fausch is one of the most prominent river scientists of his cohort who pioneered numerous breakthrough ideas in the modern study of rivers. This book deserves all the acclaim it’s received…. (This blog was first published in The Fisheries Blog on February 12, 2018).
