Holiday Gift Guide

Give someone This Fine Piece of Water as a gift this year. You can find it here, at the Yale University Press website, and here, at Amazon, here.

And Tom Baptist, executive director of Audubon Connecticut, reminds me that it's on sale at the Greenwich Audubon Center (613 Riversville Road, Greenwich)
as well.

Citizens Campaign for the Environment recommends it in its holiday gift guide (here), and it got terrific reviews, for example:

“A compelling narrative” (Newsday)

“ elegant … volume that belongs on the shelf of anyone who cares about the health of the Sound” (The Journal News).

“... a superb example of environmental journalism. Thoroughly researched and elegantly written, it recounts a contemporary saga with nuance and high drama.” (New York History, the journal of the New York State Historical Society)

“Andersen tells an intense story of how years of neglect and abuse ended in an ecological crisis, and how advocates finally managed, in 1998, to get the government to do something about it.” (Onearth, the journal of the Natural Resources Defense Council)

I understand, by the way, that the publisher doesn't have all that many more copies and there are no plans to reprint it, so get it while you can.
