Who is the River Gator written by?
The River-Gator was written by John Ruskey who has been paddling, photographing, and documenting the islands, landings and channels of the Lower Mississippi River since 1982. A host of river experts reviewed content including author Ernest Herndon (Canoeing Mississippi, Canoeing Louisiana),
and biologist Paul Hartfield (USFW). Project coordinated by the Lower Mississippi River Conservation Committee. The River Gator website is made possible with a grant from the Walton Family Foundation, which believes in "conservationomics": lasting solutions that make sense for the economy and the environment.
