"Buffalo River Handbook, 2nd ed"
Ken Smith—conservationist, park planner, and the designer and construction supervisor of most of the eighty miles of the Buffalo River Trail—brings
to light in this edition his discerning engineer’s intellect, his photographer’s eye, his love for the outdoors as well as the people and land of the
Ozarks and the Buffalo National River, and his passion for the protection and active exploration of our natural resources. Smith offers a three-part
guide to the river, complete with maps, diagrams and photographs: insights on geology, wildlife, plants, Native Americans, pioneers, and the history
of the development of the Buffalo River as the first National river; a detailed guide describing the entire 146-mile length of the river itself; and
a guide for over 150 miles of hiking trails. The Buffalo River Handbook, 2nd edition, is a comprehensive reference encyclopedia, a trail and float
guide, and a cultural history of the area of north Arkansas that encompasses the Buffalo River—a jewel in the crown of undammed, free-flowing
rivers in Arkansas and the nation.
