"The often shrill politics of ‘Save the Bay’ is replaced by a calm and positive outlook on the realistic actions individuals and businesses can take to move toward sustainability,” wrote a National Science Teachers Association reviewer of Ned Tillman’s award-winning The Chesapeake Watershed: A Sense of Place and a Call to Action (2009). Now, in a second uplifting book, readers follow Tillman to some of the country’s most beautiful places, learn what threatens them, and discover what each of us can do about it.

We all know the threats—climate change, fossil fuels, fracking, chemicals, stormwater runoff, ocean dumping, industrial agriculture, and waste disposal—but do we know how much we can correct if we start, literally, in our own back yards?

Designed to meet the needs of the Common Core curriculum, Saving the Places We Love combines history and science with lively first-person anecdotes to engage the reader in some of the 21st century’s big ideas. Tillman encourages readers to evaluate the evidence and choose their own paths to preserving the country’s natural treasures.
