Summary
"Denton's documentary tells the story of the river and the people, of many sorts, with diverse purposes, who live and depend on it. Bear River begins in alpine snowfields, lakes, and creeks in the Uinta Mountains, flows north through Wyoming, loops south in Idaho, and enters the inland sea by way of an environmentally critical bird refuge. Along the way it has many uses - habitat, farms, electricity, recreation, lawns and homes. Denton researched the natural and human history of the river, photographed it, interviewed many stakeholders, and tried to capture the river's perspective. His photographs, printed as crisp duotones, carry us downstream, ultimately to big questions, begging to be answered soon, about what we should and can make of the Bear River."--BOOK JACKET
