Passage of Discovery: The American Rivers Guide to the Missouri River of Lewis and Clark
Not available online
TitlePassage of Discovery: The American Rivers Guide to the Missouri River of Lewis and Clark
AbstractChapter of the book on aspects of city planning of Kansas City in relation to its two major rivers, the Missouri and Kansas. Excerpts of descriptions of the area in the time of the Lewis and Clark expedition before modifications and comparisons of Kansas City's treatment, including development and pollution, of the rivers to other major cities on rivers, finding little living or park space to enjoy views of either river.
NotesCities connected to their rivers, with parks along the riverfront, generally do better than those whose roads, railroads, airports, and other constructions separate the river from the rest of the city. Here [an illustration of an ideally planned city on a river, possibly based on Portland, Oregon], parks along a city's riverfront benefit the river, the people, the environment, and commerce.
