"Thrillcraft: The Environmental Consequences of Motorized Recreation explores the ecological, economic, political, and cultural effects of a mounting crisis. Essays by scientists, economists, activists, social critics, and others outline the many ways thrillcraft attack and degrade our collective natural heritage. More than one hundred photographs document how this motorized assault is destroying ecosystems from the Florida Everglades to the Alaskan tundra." "Thrillcraft makes no bones about the need to take back our wildlands, our culture, and our peace and quiet from this growing nuisance. Charting a vision for the future, the book tells the stories of successful campaigns where motorized recreation has been reduced or eliminated from public lands. In the end, the choice is ours: either we rein in this motorized menace or we lose the natural landscapes that make America special."--BOOK JACKET.
