Paul Lindholdt: The Spokane River

Please join us to hear more about this new collection of Spokane River related stories and studies edited by local Professor, Paul Lindholdt!

About the Book:

From Lake Coeur d'Alene to its confluence with the Columbia, the Spokane River travels 111 miles of varied and often spectacular terrain - rural, urban, in places wild. The river has been a trading and gathering place for indigenous people for thousands of years. With bountiful trout, accessible swimming holes, and challenging rapids, it is a recreational magnet for residents and tourists alike. The contributors to this collection profile the living river through personal reflection, history, science, and poetry.
