"The Riverkeepers"
by John Cronin and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Scribner, New York 1997

The Riverkeepers is a first-hand account of the genesis and battles of the Hudson Riverkeeper. Clearly and economically written, impassioned but restrained. This book chronicles some of the legal and political battles waged to protect and restore the Hudson River. Law, aquatic ecology, personalities, behind-the-scenes dueling. An informative and inspiring volume. A must-buy for any who care about the Hudson River, environmental law, and models of responsible activism in general. Also of neighborhood interest to Crotonville since according to this book, the Riverkeeper organization was born right here in a meeting at the Parker-Bale VFW. -ggh CNA
