FREE FLOW ON THE GILA RIVER (Nat Stone, 2013, 20 min) 

During a 2013 trip down the Gila River in the company of fellow free-flow advocates, author and outdoorsman Dutch Salmon reminisces about the motives for his first descent from the Gila headwaters to Safford, Arizona with his tomcat and hound dog, and recounts the continuing need to defend New Mexico’s last free-flowing river from man-made depletion. Advocates for natural water cycles anywhere, and government officials who legislate water policy, will find with Dutch a passionate voice for water protection that freely crosses partisan lines.
