Paul Bunyan Lives! and Other Tales From the Natural World
How close did the Bureau of Reclamation come in the 1960s to building two dams in the Grand Canyon?
Michael O'Rourke's essays explore natural world topics that aren't likely to spring to mind when you think "nature" or "environment." From urine-filled Dr Pepper bottles at a trashed-out campsite in Tennessee, to the almost universally mis-reported Tellico Dam/snail darter controversy in the 1970s, to El Tule, the tree with the largest trunk girth in the world, you'll find O'Rourke's essays as fun to read as they are eye-opening.
