Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Colville River is a major river of the Arctic Ocean coast of Alaska in the United States, approximately 350 mi (560 km) long. One of the northernmost major rivers in the North America, it drains a remote area of tundra on the north side of the Brooks Range entirely above the Arctic Circle. The river is frozen for more than half the year and floods each spring.It rises in an isolated area of the De Long Mountains, at the western end of the Brooks Range, north of the continental divide in the southwestern corner of the National Petroleum Reserve. It flows initially north, then generally east through the foothills on the north side of the range, broadening as it receives the inflow of many tributaries that descend from the middle Brooks Range. Along its middle course it forms the southeastern border of the National Petroleum Reserve.show more
