GILA LIBRE!; New Mexico's Last Wild River

Albuquerque, NM: University of New Mexico Press, 2008. First edition. Paperback. 6 x 9, 144 pgs, color photos and illustrations. The story of a geographic anomaly that includes roughly four million acres of the nation's first designated wilderness area, New Mexico's largest national forest, and the state's only undammed river. Visitors might spot a beaver and a coatimundi on the same day, an elk and a javelina on the same hillside, or catch a flathead catfish and a wild trout in the same pool. Apaches roamed along the Gila's shores, as did mountain men and outlaws. It also tells the river's story to date, extolling what is still a unique Southwest resource and speculating on its future, which includes the threatening proposal of a major state and federal water project.
