Inhaltsangabe: "A radiant panorama of the Everglades that?s both a feast for the eyes and a prod to the conscience," says Kirkus Reviews. Light Fading: Reflections on the Imperiled Everglades is the only book of its kind dedicated to America's most famous wetland: a hardcover, full-color volume of over 320 pages filled with brilliant photography -- including many two-page spreads and numerous full-page images, laid out at a generous size that heightens the book's visual impact. Along with his stunning and exquisite photographs, the author also provides a thoughtful essay that is at once lyrically descriptive, personally touching, and unapologetically scathing in its hard-headed assault on current policy and cultural attitudes affecting the Florida Everglades region.
Using the problems besetting the Everglades as an apt example, Curzon frames those attitudes in a global context, and suggests a radical revaluation of our place in the natural world. The result is a book of tremendous visual beauty that simultaneously packs a potent emotional and intellectual punch, a work of significance for lovers of the Everglades, but also for the future of environmental thought in general.
Inhaltsangabe: Exquisite full color images, an essay and scientific fact combine to create a title that explores the Everglades and its current precarious condition. Through research, discussions with biologists, and hours trekking through the swamps, marshes and forests of the Everglades, Curzon highlights the continued threats to this precious ecosystem. A large format book with visual beauty to entice the reader to attend to the book's substantive message-Night is falling in the Everglades.
