In 1991, Mark Hertsgaard left the United States on a five-year journey around the world to investigate the global environmental crisis.  An Eco-travelogue, Earth Odyssey details his environmental globe-trotting while presenting the current ecology crisis on an intensely human scale.  Not necessarily a primer for how to save the planet, Herstgaard's book reports on its condition and helps identify its most threatened areas and resources.
