Cherry, Lynn
(Harcourt, Brace, Jovanovich, 1992)

This richly illustrated children's book chronicles the environmental history of the Nashua River from its discovery by Indians until the present day. During the Industrial Revolution the river was polluted by waste dumped from the textile mills & other industries. The clean-up of the river was initiated by the Nashua River Cleanup Committee. This book reminds people of all ages what can happen to the environment when unrestricted dumping of waste is allowed.
