Pictorial Wrappers. As New/No Jacket. 5.50 x 8.50". Pristine condition. This book is the third volume in the Army Corps of Engineers' Environmental History Series. Merritt, the author of numerous works on the history of technology, analyzes the historical developments and concerns that have affected life in the upper Mississippi River basin. Beginning with the development of towns such as St. Paul and Minneapolis in the mid-19th century, the region coped with reconciling industrial and commercial development with environmental protection. From sawmills and paper mills to the construction of locks in the 1930s, the projects aroused concern for fish and wildlife and for the effects on municipal sewage and drainage facilities. The ACE has been actively involved in all these efforts. 119 pages, index, illustrated with photos, maps. Size: 5.50 x 8.50". Bookseller Inventory # 000528
