Seek Higher Ground

The Natural Solution to Our Urgent Flooding Crisis

«“Nature writer Palmer (Endangered Rivers and the Conservation Movement) delivers an urgent warning about the perils of Americans’ penchant for living too close to rivers destined to unleash catastrophic flooding as Earth’s atmosphere warms and its rains intensify. . . . What’s most valuable here are the stories of lessons learned by individuals and communities who have taken steps to end the cycles of rebuilding in and near floodplains. It's an encouraging guidebook for community leaders and organizers looking for a sensible path forward.»

Publishers Weekly

«A powerful argument for protection of floodplain open space and for programs that help people relocate their homes away from high-water hazards. Only by recognizing and adapting to the indomitable forces of nature can we thrive in the challenging climate to come.»

Climate and Capitalism

«Readers will find the book compelling.»

Association of State Floodplain Managers

«Palmer’s writing…is an urgent call for action starting with changes in our attitudes towards floods and flooding. The book is not all gloom and doom, however, because  Palmer makes a good case for positive actions that if taken now will pay off in the future, as the title of the book (Seek Higher Ground) indicates.»
