Rappahannock's Embrey Dam Commemorative Book 2004

Price: $15.00 each (plus shipping and handling - VA Sales tax applies)

In a split second, a massive explosion ripped through Embrey Dam on the Rappahannock River on Monday, February 23, 2004. But the blast will have a lasting impact on the river, which will run free for the first time in more than a century and a half. Own a memento of this once-in-a-lifetime event.

"River Runs Free: Breaching the Rappahannock's Embrey Dam," charts the history of the dam in a full-color book produced by The Free Lance–Star. The 48-page volume includes scenic and documentary photographs and essays about the dam and the river.

The book sells for $15, with a $3 donation from the sale of each book to Friends of the Rappahannock, a local river conservation group.
