Part One: A valuable jewel

The Braden River is a rare bird. It’s a geologic rarity because it flows mostly north instead of south. It is fed by rainfall that trickles down through tiny tributaries amid the cow pastures of eastern Manatee County and gathers strength as it cuts a path through ranchland, suburbia and urban areas to empty into the Manatee River.
