I picked up this book at the library and read the inside flap and thought ....I hate fracking so wouldn't like this book at all and put it back. Then picked it up again and since a lot of it was written about Houston and Galveston and oil wells and drilling (all the things I knew about) I decided to get it. Glad I did because the book will surprise you. It's about a lot of other things along with climate change and history and people. A book you will enjoy until the very last page. ...more
