The Environmental Movement by Liz Sonneborn

The Environmental Movement introduces readers to this significant movement, which arose in the United States in the late 1800s in response to the nation's dwindling forests and the pollution caused by a greater number of factories. The abundant photographs and vibrant text chronicles the accomplishments of conservationists such as Gifford Pinchot and John Muir, who helped the movement gain a foothold in the United States. This useful book also details how environmentalism has become a global effort, led by organizations such as Greenpeace and the World Wildlife Fund.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
