The San Marcos springs have flowed for around ten million years. In this ode to the river they form, Jim Kimmel brings us a picture of a watercourse brimming with life, past and present. Native, non-native, prehistoric, and modern-day plants, animals, and people have inhabited the river and its banks. Kimmel touches on them all with the affectionate and knowledgeable voice of one whose own life has been closely linked to the San Marcos. As readers journey with Kimmel from the river's headwater springs to its junction with the Guadalupe River, The San Marcos: A River's Story will capture the imagination and provide valuable information about the river and its crucial role in the ecological health of Texas. Original photographs by Jerry Touchstone Kimmel add a sense of the beauty and complexity of the river.

As in Jim's book on the Brazos, he has hit another home run with the book on the San Marcos. This book is also quite readable and is chock full of facts about the San Marcos River of which I was totally unaware. As in the book on the Brazos, the photography is first-class all the way through. I highly recommend this book for anyone with any interest in the geography of the state of Texas.

Very well written and the photography compliments the script. Great husband and wife team work on this. You won't want to put it down once you start reading.
Well worth the money.
Rivik
A very interesting review of the history and ecosystems of this beautiful and unusual river.

I attended a book signing in the Gonzales County Courthouse and heard the author speak about this book. I was very interested by what I heard and became more so after glancing through the illustrations. Later, after having read it, I have to admit it answered so many nagging questions I'd had over the years. A veteran of the Great Flood of '98, for example, I was most interested in learning about the Soil Conservation Service reservoirs, designed to lessen flood damage in the watershed, but inadvertently contributing to future silting problems. And I'd heard of logging operations in Luling, but never met anyone who knew anything about it. These and other questions found answers in this book, which is beautifully written and illustrated. Well worth reading.
