Description
In the Mississippi River Delta, 25 to 30 square miles -- a land mass twice the size of Manhattan -- vanishes every year. Using this crisis to examine America's reluctance to accept the fragility of nature, journalist Christopher Hallowell also explores the dangers facing the rest of the country, from the Long Island Sound to the San Francisco Bay.

Here Hallowell tells of massive erosion and rising sea levels in the Delta that threaten 40 percent of the nation's wetlands, one-third of the nation's fish harvest, oil and gas reserves, local residents, and New Orleans itself. This engrossing narrative -- as entertaining as it is educational -- centers on the environmentalists, engineers, politicians, and fishermen who are struggling to reverse the loss of an essential element of our nation's natural heritage.
