The Traverse Group of the Sierra Club is proud to present:
Dave Dempsey, author of "Ruin and Recovery"
Friday, June 18th 6-8 pm at Horizon Books, downtown Traverse City
Dave will read from and sign copies of his latest book, "On The Brink: The Great Lakes in the 21st Century"
Policy Advisor for the Michigan Environmental Council and former environmental advisor to James J. Blanchard, Dave weaves the natural character and phenomena of the Great Lakes with the history of their environmental exploitation and recovery. Contrasting the beauty and complexity of the Lakes with the disasters that short-sighted human folly has inflicted on the ecosystem, On the Brink makes this history both engaging and relevant.

"Written by Dave Dempsey (an environmental policy teacher of Michigan State University who served by President Bill Clinton's appointment on the Great Lakes Fishery Commission), On The Brink: The Great Lakes In The 21st Century is a clarion wake-up call to the dangers the Great Lakes ecosystem face today. Summarizing a history of the Great Lakes' environmental exploitation and gradual recovery, and blending in thoughts on the poetry, folklore, inspiration derived from the Great Lakes as well as citizen action to preserve them, On The Brink brings true environmental history to life in an exciting manner that challenges the reader to get involved and join the fight to protect a national treasure."
