This book is for environmentalists and for those that don't believe in 'global warming'. It's for those who had (or have) a wonderful relationship with a parent, and for those who don't. It's a book to share with your children to get them fired up about hanging out with you. It's also a book to get them fired up about saving the environment. It's really a book for just about anyone.
In 'Journey to the Edge of Eden, " Schmelz writes a memoir of a fascinating life that started in the city of Newark, NJ and ended up in a place that couldn't possibly be any different.
Schmelz ended up sharing his life and his passion for nature with his father, who really started him on the path to a career as a marine biologist, researcher, and finally, an educator about the damage that we, as humans, have done and continue to do to our planet.
If 'Journey' doesn't turn you into an environmentalist, it will at least make you want to take a trip to Land of 10,000 Lakes way down in Florida - before it's gone.
