Illuminating, engaging, and even inspiring. I read as I began a new phase of volunteer work with The Nature Conservancy in MIchigan and I found several of the chapters to not only provide good background to current issues, but incredibly relevant. For instance, the history of Chicago's water diversions and the legal arguments about them echo today, as does the discussions about oil and gas drilling, toxics, and the efforts to save dunes. Very good section on Owosso's James Oliver Curwood. ( )
