About this book
Blackwell embraces a different kind of travel, to polluted and ravaged places such as Canada's oil sand strip mines, the Chinese city of Linfen and the reeking waters of the Ganges in India. Combines first-hand descriptions with satire and analysis.
The lifeless moonscape of Canada's oil sand strip mines. A vast vortex of plastic floating endlessly around the Pacific. An eerily abandoned town square in a radioactive Ukrainian wilderness. These are the places the author set out to explore. This title presents the tale of his trip through the world's most degraded environments.
