Turning the Tide: Saving the Chesapeake Bay
Publisher: Island Press, 1991 Washington, D C.
ISBN: 1559631007 Book. Book condition: Good. Trade paperback 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall "Two decades ago, the Chesapeake Bay's future looked bleak. Its once-bountiful fisheries were declining, its underwater grass beds disappearing, and its oxygen levels on the wane. Shocked into action, Public and private groups joined forces to save the bay. And great strides have been made over the years toward halting and reversing the damage done to the Chesapeake. The cleanup of the Potomac River, the rebound of the striped bass, and the other isolated triumphs have led some to label the campaign a success. But is it? Turning the Tide, written by Tom Horton with William Eichbaum for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, looks beyond the bay's vital signs to gauge the health of its entire ecosystem, and assesses what has been done and 2what remains to be done to clean up the bay." xxiv + 324 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition. Paper wrappers.
