Photographer to discuss ‘Rivers of America’

Photographer Tim Palmer will make a rare appearance for the South Yuba River Citizens League in Nevada City Wednesday to commemorate the release of his new book, “Rivers of America.” Palmer’s photos and essays capture the awesome variety of and dazzling artistry of America’s rivers – hundreds of which he’s navigated – and eloquently describe the magnetic appeal of flowing water and its vital ecological role in our lives.

An award-winning author of 17 books about adventure travel, rivers and the American landscape, he lived in Nevada City while he researched the South Yuba and helped SYRCL get the river designated wild and scenic by the state.

Palmer waxes ectastic about the river in an interview with Janet Cohen in this Fall’s issue of “Sierra Citizen,” calling it “exceptional,””hopeful” and a treasure.” (See interview at

The event takes place on Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Masonic Hall, 108 1/2 South Pine St., Nevada City. A small donation will be requested at the door. Signed copies of “Rivers of America” may be purchased.

SYRCL is a 23-year-old organization in Nevada City that protects and restores the Yuba River Watershed.
