Synopsis

Lakes by Jeanne K. Hanson

Both a scientific tour and a journey through time, this intriguing new book profiles 10 of the world's most exciting lakes. From the Caspian Sea, a giant salt water lake, to Lake Eyre, the lake that vanishes, to the sub-Arctic Great Slave Lake, the story of each lake unfolds with a look at its origins, how it has changed over time, and why. Featured lakes are found in the Middle East, the United States, Russia, South America, Europe, Australia, and Canada. Additional lakes, described in boxed sidebars, include two explosive killer lakes in Africa and a California lake that has become an arsenictainted dustbowl. An eye-catching, full-color photographic insert, plus additional dramatic black-and-white images and illustrations, complement lively text.
