The Secret World of Lakes By Curt Stager
n Still Waters, Curt Stager introduces us to the secret worlds hidden within lakes as he travels from the Adirondacks to the wilds of Siberia, from Massachusetts to the Middle East. For him, lakes are both mirrors and windows into history, culture, and ecology. Stager fills his narrative with strange and enchanting details about these submerged worlds-diving insects chirping underwater like crickets, African crater lakes that explode, the growing threats to Thoreau's cherished pond- while emphasizing how beautiful and precious our lakes are, and how, more than ever, it is essential to protect them.
