A Journey Beyond the Oiled Pelican and Into the Heart of the Gulf Oil Spill
Winner of the Phillip D. Reed Memorial Award for Outstanding Writing on the Southern Environment
After the Deepwater Horizon well was capped in 2010, most reporters and government officials turned away from the unfolding narrative: the story was over. But for one writer the unimaginable amount of oil spilled into the ocean was only the beginning—initiating a journey into the heart of Gulf country and an exploration of the wildlife and humans who call it home.
Down the Charles River in Pursuit of a New Environmentalism
With a tragically leaky canoe, a broken cell phone, a cooler of beer, and a passionate environmental planner in tow, the author sets off on a rough-and-tumble journey down Boston’s Charles River. Along the way, the vision of a new sort of eco-champion begins to emerge: someone who falls in love with a forgotten space, and then fights like hell for it.
