"Krista Schyler has woven her way into the soul of the Anacostia with poetic prowess. . . . a symphony of beauty through words and photos. As the river becomes cleaner and sparks more recreation on the water and development on the waterfront, it behooves us to protect the ecological system that has given birth there. Krista has showered the Anacostia with a sense of wonder as she pays tribute to the river of redemption."--Brenda Lee Richardson, Director, Earth Conservation Corps Monique Johnson Anacostia River Center--Brenda Lee Richardson
"Krista Schlyer rediscovers a treasure in our nation's capital, the Anacostia River. A gifted story teller and photographer, she leads us on a moving expedition of human failure and the miracle of nature's renewal." --Tommy Wells, Director, Department of Energy and Environment
