One of-a-kind, comprehensive atlas of America’s waterfalls
  • Most exhaustive history of America’s waterfalls ever published
  • Extensive state-by-state overview
  • Includes information on geology, flora and fauna associated with waterfalls, human and cultural history, and more

The culmination of more than four decades of collecting and interpreting information about waterfalls throughout the United States and its territories, Waterfall Atlas of the United States reveals the varied nature of these natural phenomenon from several perspectives--including geographical, physical, and cultural— through the use of maps, figures, and photographs. The first of three sections examines the natural and geologic history of waterfalls, including their different forms and distribution across the country. The second part touches on exploration and lore, along with cultural and economic aspects, related to waterfalls. And the final part, the core of the atlas, examines waterfalls within individual states, including Washington, DC, and US territories.

Designed for waterfall aficionados or burgeoning fans of falls, as well as for special collections and libraries, this one-of-a-kind atlas is sure to capture the hearts and minds of waterfall lovers everywhere.
