Reflections on the Imperiled Everglades

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.
