About this product
- DescriptionMaking a quiet and cautiously hopeful statement about environmental protection, this spellbinding collection of photographs does t bombard readers with visual imagery or urgent calls for alarm. Instead it celebrates the ability of nature--all by itself--to enthrall and engage human sympathies. The photographs include many views of wildlife and wilderness, as well as scenes of human activity, and simple pieces of short commentary complement the images. A remarkable black-and-white portrait of a polar bear against a dark background is accompanied by a few sober sentences about its proposed listing as a threatened species, and a great picture of New York City and is used to paise the efficiency of high density: Manhattan uses less energy per capita than anywhere else in the United States. A resource section listing websites for organizations, green living, and environmental news and opinion is also included.
