Did recent Earth Day activities generate an interest in topics related to the environment?  This new reference book is a great way to continue fueling the inspiration.  Read about oil and the automobile, the evolution of the National Park Service and/or the Donora Smog of 1948.  Dozens of additional topics are covered and discussed in this new source.  Photos and primary texts are scattered throughout the volume.
