This little volume is a river dweller's homage to forty years inspired by the spirit of Susquehanna, a return gift of storytelling, poetry, and color images. Eight essays to turn us on our heads so all the stuff in our pockets--state lines, dams, power plants, mines, the lint of classification--all drop out and we see Susquehanna for who she is, nothing but an unbound goddess. We think we have restored her to a place of honor. She is the one always at work touching us deeply and restoring Our honor.

In the second Adventure of Davy Match, Davy, now sixteen, is invited by Professor Beal to join an archeological dig in Anatolia. The professor gets into a jam with a rare letter on archeology he’s “borrowed” from the British Museum, and Davy is sent off to Kurdistan to lay low, with this letter— written by the hand of Benjamin Franklin. On a mountaintop, by the enormous head of an ancient God-King, he meets Gül, a mysterious Kurdish girl, who instructs him to go to the town of Hasankeyf on the River Tigris, a town doomed to be flooded by the construction of a hydro dam. Gül challenges him to help her find the grave of her missing brother, a Kurdish fighter.
