Baikal. Sacred Sea of Siberia
San Francisco, Sierra Club, (1992). Text by Matthiessen, who, at the invitation of musician Paul Winter, visited Lake Baikal in hopes of stirring a response that would help save the lake, which contains one-fifth of all the fresh water on earth and which has been threatened in recent years by acid rain and industrial pollution. Stunning photographs by Boyd Norton; introduction by the poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko. Inscribed by the author in 2003, "for Rahda and Jimmy, with much love." Fine in a very near fine, price-clipped dust jacket. [#035592] $150
