The Scars of Project 459: The Environmental Story of the Lake of the Ozarks (Hardback)Traci Angel (author)
- We can order this
Traci Angel shows how the popularity of the Lake of the Ozarks has resulted in major present-day problems, including poor water quality, loss of habitat, and increasing concerns about aging waste-management systems for the homes surrounding the lake. Many in the area, especially business owners whose incomes depend on tourism, resist acknowledging these problems. The Scars of Project 459 aims to make public the challenges facing this important resource and ensure that its future is not to be loved to death.

Angel s work challenges our preconceptions about nature, the relationship between humans and the environment, and the management of natural resources. In many ways, it is a classic example of the tragedy of the commons. However, the story of the Lake of the Ozarks is unique in ways that make it valuable for readers interested in the environment, Missouri, and the South.
