"The persistent theme... is water and trees," Jack Wennerstrom writes of the upper Potomac. "The recurring signposts of gnarled and woody glory are the sycamores, which lean along the banks like static titans... great flawed and broken windmills to be tilted at by madmen. I am one of those madmen." Jack Wennerstrom's passionate and abiding interest in the Potomac makes him the ideal guide to the river and its environs. In Leaning Sycamores, he invites us to explore the rugged beauty and rich human history of the Potomac's upper reaches. The flow and rush of the current, the leaning bankside trees, the rocks and flowers, the people, places, and wildlife -- all are lovingly observed and connected in his warmly personal account. In ten gracefully written chapters, Wennerstrom describes the river's geology and natural history, its long record of human habitation, and the ecology of its plants and animals. He relates memorable encounters with people who live and work along its banks, as well as time spent alone, fishing, rafting, and hiking. He writes of the magic of moving water and its powerful effect on mind and spirit.
