Media reviews
A superb example of environmental journalism. Thoroughly researched and elegantly written, it recounts a contemporary saga with nuance and high drama. Philip G. Terrie, New York History; "This is a murky story in the truest sense of the word, and Tom Andersen's reporting sheds some useful light." Bill McKibben; "Andersen has nicely wrapped 12,000 years of natural, social, and political history into this fine piece of work. I urge everyone with an interest in the natural and unnatural history of the Sound to read it." Soundkeeper Terry Backer; "Andersen writes vividly about the Sound and environs... A compelling narrative." Polly Shulman, Newsday; "Andersen turns a story of environmental degradation into a riveting saga full of hope. His scholarship is impressive; his style is clear; and the warmth with which he regards his subject is evident on every page." Mary Parker Buckles, author of Margins: A Naturalist Meets Long Island Sound"
