Summary

The Death and Life of the Great Lakes is unusual for a new book, having already netted a "work-in-progress" award from the Columbia Journalism School and Harvard's Nieman Foundation for Journalism in 2015. Living up to this early acclaim, the book, which documents the ecological demise of the Great Lakes, is easy to read, offering well-paced, intellectually stimulating arguments, bolstered by well-researched and captivating narratives.
