About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for THE CONTROL OF NATURE by MCPHEE, JOHN.

Description:

New York: Farrar Straus, 1989. Advanced Reader's Copy. A near-fine copy in wrappers. Advanced uncorrected proof. There are a few marks in ink throughout the text and a minute bump at the head of the spine, else fine. McPhee's fascinating account of places where people are locked into consuming struggles with nature--fighting the Mississippi River, the flow of boulders and mud in the mountains surrounding Los Angeles, the lava flow in Iceland and Hawaii, and other noble battles--often lost in the long run. An apt commentary considering Katrina. Bookseller Inventory #
