KIRKUS REVIEW

Distinguished by its many illustrations (including 84 b&w photographs, ten pages of charts and diagrams, and, most unusually, 36 pages of illustrated storyboards), here's a clear and elegant ecological guidebook. Explorer/author Steger (North to the Pole), who just this month completed the first successful foot-and-dog-powered trans-Antarctic expedition, and Bowermaster, an environment-outdoors journalist, offer well-organized discussions of the causes of and possible cures for smog, acid rain, saltwater and freshwater pollution, etc.--with lists of recommended individual and government actions, suggested readings, and organizations to contact. The most handsomely designed and accessible of the available guidebooks, with the illustrations driving the authors' dire--but not unhopeful--message home time and again.
