Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Wheelwright, a science writer, undertook a five-year survey of the area surrounding Prince William Sound in Alaska, interviewing over 100 scientists and government officials, to determine what happens to a wilderness ecosystem after both natural and man-made disasters, e.g. the earthquake of 1964 and the Exxon Valdez oil spill of 1989. Wheelwright looks at oil-tracking methods, shoreline cleanup programs and natural cleanup by waves and weather, and the fate of the sea otter.
