A prize-winning reporter for the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL has written a readable, fair-minded account of the collapse and transformation of the Great Lakes ecosystem from the opening of the Erie Canal through the present. Jason Culp narrates this epic tale of human arrogance, unintended consequences, and environmental degradation, told through personal interviews, memorable stories, and solid descriptions of science. Culp's pace his consistent, and his narration exceptionally clear. His slightly nasal tenor complements Egan's avuncular style, and he evidences no difficulty with scientific vocabulary. While the author offers as much optimism as anyone can, the story of the Great Lakes is a cautionary tale of importance far from their shores. A great audiobook for anyone interested in environmental issues anywhere. F.C. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2017]
