Living River book tour comes to Copper Queen Library

On May 9, 2023, at 5:30 p.m., Copper Queen Library will host conservation photographer Dave Showalter as he presents his latest book, Living River: The Promise of the Mighty Colorado.

Living River takes readers on a journey through the endangered Colorado River from source to sea and illustrates how we can create a resilient watershed by changing our relationship with water.

Featuring stunning photography and powerful essays, Living River captures landscapes rich with wildlife, from the upper Colorado’s tributary Fraser River to the southwestern Gila and San Pedro Rivers. Showalter weaves in the stories of riverkeepers who work tirelessly to protect and preserve the river and its surrounding communities.

Living River is published by Braided River, the conservation imprint of Mountaineers Books. For more information, visit
