The glistening Hudson River was once horribly polluted; a glorious New York City garden was once a rubble-strewn lot; bears were once threatened in the Minnesota wilderness. What happened? Earth keepers came to the rescue, reversing the destruction of our natural resources and restoring places where fish swim, flowers bloom, and bears frolic.
In this fascinating environmental photo essay-a companion book to their highly successful American Family Farm-the award-winning author-photographer team of Joan Anderson and George Ancona present the inspiring stories of three groups of earth keepers: people preserving our environment and living in harmony with nature.
