Richard Morris dedicated Canoedling in Cleveland to “the heroes who brought back fish, ducks, and eagles to the Cuyahoga River and people to the beaches of Lake Erie and who created Cuyahoga Valley National Park.”
In 2014 he introduced Canoedling in Cleveland at the Burning River Festival https://richardmorrisauthor.wordpress.com/2014/07/29/the-best-book-release-party-is-one-that-you-crash/ and in 2016 published the second edition containing “canoe story” pictures by illustrator Audrey Engdahl.
Today NPR featured the fiftieth anniversary of the event that led to the Cuyahoga River becoming the poster child for the Clean Water Act. https://www.npr.org/2019/06/18/733615959/50-years-later-burning-cuyahoga-river-called-poster-child-for-clean-water-act
Hold this as a beacon to what can happen if we can return to a national leadership that takes us forward instead of backward.
