Midwest Book Review,
of America's water problems usually are limited to the West, so it's eye-opening
to view a title which is the first to call attention to the disappearance
of fresh water from Florida to the Great Lakes. From the high demands
of newly sprawling Florida subdivisions to freshwater aquifers which are
disappearing elsewhere, MIRAGE blends investigative journalism with environmental
and science history to prove an essential survey of problems and solutions.
A 'must' not just for Eastern U.S. libraries, but for any collection on
environmental issues and challenges.
