Fateful Harvest: The True Story of a Small Town, a Global Industry, and a Toxic Secret

By Wilson, Duff

HarperCollins, 2001. Book. Near-Fine. Hardcover. First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Near-fine condition. Stated First Edition. Remainder mark on bottom. NO price clippings. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. 322 pages. Tight spine, clean pages. Fateful Harvest is a riveting exposé developed from the series of articles for the Seattle Times that made Duff Wilson a Pulitzer Prize finalist. This narrative reveals the shocking details of American manufacturing industries that dump toxic waste into our soil by passing it off as fertilizer. As the corporations are denying their activities, horses and cows are dying, children are falling ill, and there is a disproportionate incidence of cancer. It is the story of a small town mayor and a handful of farmers pitted against a powerful and secretive industry, and the struggle of a lone reporter to unravel the truth in the face of intimidation, lies, and lawyers. In the tradition of A Civil Action and The Coming Plague, Duff Wilson's Fateful Harvest exposes horrific details of corporations poisoning America to save themselves a few bucks, victims too easily bought by their enemy, and small-town, larger-than-life heroes-all filtered through the impassioned voice of an award-winning investigative journalist. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Wanderings of an Environmental Journalist: In Alaska and the American West

By Fradkin, Philip L.

Albuquerque, New Mexico, U.S.A.: Univ of New Mexico Pr, 1993. Book. Fine. Hardcover. First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Book is in Fine condition. Dustcover is in very-good condition. NO remainder marks or price clippings. Tight spine, clean pages. 273 pages. Illustrated. NO writing or tears inside book. Black boards with copper lettering (clean and bright). From Publishers Weekly Fradkin roamed freely in the 1970s and '80s as the Los Angeles Times 's first environmental writer, and as a contributor to Audubon. These 15 pieces, about evenly divided in covering Alaska and the West, include several gems. "The Eating of the West" is a thoughtful exploration of the "high environmental cost" (overgrazing) of America's penchant for beef consumption. "The First Pipeline" describes the people and politics behind the "expensive failure" of the original Alaska pipeline, built during WW II. A late-'70s article on dangers facing supertankers in Valdez Narrows foretells the Exxon disaster. Some pieces are dated, but Franklin's engaging style and insights into ongoing issues--the "alienation" of Native Americans from their lands, overcrowding in the West, the constant threat of fire in California--make this a rewarding collection for concerned readers. Illustrations not seen by PW. Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Kirkus Reviews Fifteen essays by Fradkin (Fallout, 1989, etc.), originally published in the Los Angeles Times and Audubon magazine during the 1970's. The pieces offer a sobering, articulate view of specific environmental concerns in the West, most of which--as shown by an updating epilogue--have not improved in the interim. At times, the prescience of Fradkin's observations is stunning, as in a 1977 Audubon expos about the hazardous shipping lanes outside Valdez, Alaska, that suggested that it was only a matter of time before a supertanker accident occurred. Other articles on Alaska reconstruct a desperate battle on the Aleutian island of Attu, where thousands of Japanese and American troops died in 1942; describe a giant (1,750-foot) wave that scoured the granite cliffs of Lituya Bay after a massive earthquake in 1958; and detail the folly and mismanagement behind the WW II construction of the first oil pipeline out of the Arctic. Perennial hazards of fire and drought in California are among the themes addressed in a section on the American West; also covered are the acute problems throughout that region that result from overgrazing. Of particular interest is a chronicle of a one-week visit in 1977 to the energy boomtown of Craig, Colorado, at the height of its growth, to witness the social and environmental implications of a community in painful transition. Not always as timely as when first published, perhaps, but these well-researched stories are still potent and varied enough to be both appealing and broadly informative.

Ruin & Recovery: Michigan's Rise As a Conservation Leader

By Dempsey, Dave

Univ of Michigan Pr, 2001. Book. Near-Fine. Trade Paperback. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Near-fine condition. NO remainder marks or clippings. Tight spine, clean pages. Covers show slight wear (NO tears). 336 pages. Illustrated. NO writing or tears inside book. Ruin and Recovery tells the story of Michigan's cycles of resource exploitation and conservation from the early days of statehood in 1837 to the present day. Drawing from a large number of resources, including archival records and reminiscences, official documents and individual interviews, Ruin and Recovery charts the development of a conservation ethic in Michigan and chronicles the major battles for environmental protection since the late 1800s. Michigan has faced two turning points in its conservation history. One came at the end of the nineteenth century when its logging era ended, only to be followed by raging forest fires that left millions of acres of land denuded. Ruin and Recovery's discussion of this first turning point is from historical records and the later recollections of survivors of the ruinous 1908 Metz forest fire in northeastern Lower Michigan. The second turning point came in the late 1960s, when water and air pollution prompted public outrage. This controversy is brought to life through interviews with local residents, scientists, and agency officials who observed the Kalamazoo River to be the most polluted in Michigan. Both turning points set the stage for the historic eras of rebuilding that followed. Dave Dempsey serves as Communications Director for Conservation Minnesota and consults for other environmental and conservation organizations across Minnesota and Michigan. He is author of William G. Milliken: Michigan's Passionate Moderate and Ruin and Recovery: Michigan's Rise as a Conservation Leader..

Tapped Out: The Coming World Crisis in Water and What We Can Do About It

By Simon, Paul

New York, New York, U.S.A.: Welcome Rain Publishers, 1998. Book. Fine. Hardcover. Signed by Author(s). 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Photos of/from this book are available. Near-new condition. Appears unread. SIGNED/AUTOGRAPHED inscription in book front by author, Paul Simon: "To Braden - with my best wishes - Paul Simon 7/28-99". NO other writing or marks inside book. NO tears. 198 pages. NO remainder marks or price clippings. Former Senator Paul Simon delivers stirring eveidence of a catastrophic water crisis which will explode upon the global community unless drastic measures are taken in all corners of the world, including in our own backyards. Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly Simon, a former Democratic senator from Illinois, delivers a call-to-arms to citizens and political leaders to act to save the world's water supply. "Within a few years," he writes, "a water crisis of catastrophic proportions will explode on us." Simon, who was a newspaperman before he was a politician, is a clear and forceful writer who makes use of compelling statistics to outline the looming crisis: 9500 children die every day due to thirst or polluted water and a projected three billion people will be living in regions afflicted by severe water shortages in just 25 years. Among the most immediate problems Simon covers are vanishing groundwater reserves in California, polluted drinking water in India and the potential for geopolitical violence in the arid Middle East. Simon urges governments to step up their support for desalination, conservation and pollution control. He also calls for policy changes such as charging consumers for the actual cost of conveying their water. Although suffering from a drought of firsthand vignettes and individual case studies, Simon's book is well reasoned and well researched and deserves serious attention?not least because he offers the bracing example of a former public servant still committed to the intelligent and informed discussion of a pressing issue. First serial to Parade. Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc. About the Author Paul Simon is a former member of the United States Senate, and now director of the Public Policy Institute at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. In 1988 he unsuccessfully sought the Democratic nomination for President..
