The Buffalo River Country, Kenneth L. Smith

The Buffalo River Country, Kenneth L. Smith


In 1967, Ken Smith’s Buffalo River Country introduced the general public to the Buffalo River in northern Arkansas. The book is richly illustrated with photos and drawings and is divided into three sections: the river, the land, and Smith’s vision for protecting the river. Throughout the several printings of the book, Smith provided updates on the status of the proposed legislation to keep the river undammed and free-flowing—legislation which, in 1972, established the river as the Buffalo National River—the first National river in the U.S.
