The Kingfisher Camp River Detectives shows how plants and animals interact and adapt themselves to the river. It shows how living things depend on non-living things, such as water, light, sand and gravel. Young children will take delight in discovering that;
Black cottonwood trees thrive in damp riverbanks.
Belted kingfishers dive into rivers after fish.
Quartz in river sandstone is harder than a knife blade.
Bears beat paths to waterfalls to catch salmon.
The book also presents examples of river fossils, First Nations' uses of river life and the ways people harm and help the river.
