it was amazing

Best history or environmental book I've read in years, probably since reading The Late Great Lakes. Similar to that book this is a centuries-long history of the relationship of civilization to the ecosystem. I especially liked reading chapter 8 on the birds as we were vacationing in the Everglades, and the last chapters are very dramatic elucidations of recent political battles, setting the stage nicely for the environmental challenge of the 21st century, restoring ecosystems.
