Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: When you read this book you are hearing from some of the most influential conservation leaders in Texas about the single most important resource issue of our time: water. They may have been more than a little battered by the Texas water wars but they are unbowed and you can see why. Inspiring and heartfelt, this collection of essays frames an important period in Texas water history and is a must read for water hustlers and tree huggers alike!-Larry McKinney, Executive Director, Harte Research Institute.

Riassunto: In ten impassioned essays, veteran Texas environmental advocates and conservation professionals step outside their roles as lawyers, lobbyists, administrators, consultants, and researchers to write about water. Their personal stories of what the springs, rivers, bottomlands, bayous, marshes, estuaries, bays, lakes, and reservoirs mean to them and to our state come alive in the landscape photography of Charles Kruvand. Allied with the Texas Living Waters Project (a joint education and policy initiative of the Lone Star Chapter of the Sierra Club, the National Wildlife Federation, and the Environmental Defense Fund, among others), editor Ken Kramer joins his fellow activists in a call to keep rivers flowing, to protect wildlife habitat, and to save tax dollars by using water efficiently and sustainably (http://www.texaswatermatters.org/).
