by George Ancona
John Cronin wears many hats. He is an environmentalist, an activist, an orator, a fisherman, and even a detective – all in his role as caretaker of the Hudson River. John loves his work. It is his mission to clean the river and catch polluters, and to restore good health and abundance to the water’s fish and other wildlife. In pursuit of his goal, John sometimes makes enemies, but far more often he wins admirers. George Ancona is one of these. Through spirited text and striking photographs, George Ancona conveys his message: Make your interests your career – and enjoy it.
