520 2  "Each spring, formations of sandhill cranes crisscross the
       skies along Nebraska's Platte River in one of the last 
       great migratory spectacles on the North American 
       continent. From across the globe, tens of thousands of 
       visitors gather to witness a land transformed, 'wild with 
       birds.' But the central Platte River system is witness to 
       even more than this wondrous annual event. It is also an 
       abiding source of natural, agricultural, and economic life
       in three states as an icon of western history and as a 
       place of wonder. In This River Beneath the Sky, Doreen 
       Pfost seamlessly blends memoir and nature writing, 
       tracking the Platte River valley for one calendar year, 
       ushering readers through its diverse and changing 
       landscape and the plants, animals, and humans that call 
       the ecosystem home. From serving as a tour guide for 
       visitors who come to see the sandhill crane migration to 
       monitoring the population count on a bluebird trail, from 
       exploring the human settlements surrounding the Platte 
       River to wading the river with biologists, Pfost immerses 
       herself in the rhythm and life of the area. Along with 
       Pfost's personal experiences of the river, she explores 
       the river's history, the land- and water-use choices that 
       were made decades ago and their repercussions that must 
       now be mitigated if cranes--and other species--are to 
       survive and flourish, and the legislative and scientific 
       efforts to preserve the diverse species and their 
       essential habitat"--|cProvided by publisher.
