Running Silver from the Author: John Waldman. That one could “walk drishod on the backs” of schools of salmon, shad, and other fishes moving up Atlantic coast rivers was a not uncommon kind of description of their migratory runs during early Colonial times. Accounts tell of awe-inspiring numbers of spawners pushing their way upriver, the waters “running silver,” to complete life cycles that once replenished critical marine fisheries along the Eastern Seaboard. This is a hugely important, fascinating, and unique look at the fish of North America whose history and life-cycles and conservation challenges are poorly understood. Despite these primordial abundances, over the centuries these stocks were so stressed that virtually all are now severely depressed, with many biologically or commercially extinct and some simply forgotten. Running Silver will tell the story of the past, present and future of these sea-river fish. This important book will elevate public consciousness of the contrasts between the historical and the present to show the enormous legacy that has already been lost and to help inspire efforts to save what remains. Drawing on the author's thirty-year career as a scientist and educator with a passion for the native river fish of the North East, Running Silver tells the story of these endangered fish with a mix of research, historical accounts, anecdotes, personal experience, interviews, and images.

Song Of Silver Lake Vol 2 from the Author: Rod Mills. Synopsis Song of Silver Lake, vol. 2, book 2 Fiddle Girl Demonstrating a giftedness in violin, Grace discussed with her Harvard educated friend, blind Derry London, the feasibility of attending an elite institution like Julliard School of Music in New York. Derry promised to make a few phone calls, which put her in contact with Mr. Carlton Astor, founder of Astor Plastics in Seattle, also a member of the Julliard board of regents. To Derry's surprise, Mr. Astor seemed more interested in the blind woman's 7 year old niece, Ruth, than he was in Grace, the prospective Julliard student. He even insisted on flying to Silver Lake in his private aircraft to take Derry and Ruth to dinner. What could possibly be Carlton Astor's interest in little Ruth? While Derry researched Julliard School of Music, Grace was invited to tour with the McCoy family, a local amateur bluegrass group. The Real McCoy's annually closed up their Silver Lake mechanics shop to make a month long circuit to county fairs across several states. Grace, first chair in her high school orchestra, but a novice to the Bluegrass fiddle, was shocked when Pop McCoy entered her in the Lexington, Kentucky Bluegrass competition. Loyalties between the fiddle girl and The Real McCoy's were tested as bizarre events unfolded during this month long trip.
