After the Spill
The Exxon Valdez Disaster, Then and NowUnknown - 1999
On March 24, 1989 the Exxon Valdez hit Bligh Reef, spilling more than eleven million gallons of oil into Alaska's Prince William Sound. The result was one of the worst spills in history -- an environmental disaster that cost several billion dollars, and took years to clean up. Today, ten years alter the spill, this area continues to display the effects of this event -- both the expected negative changes and some surprising positive effects as well. After the Spill looks at Prince William Sound today, exploring the relationship between nature, society, and man, and the changes that occurred when this delicate balance was upset. With clear writing and insightful photographs, this is an important and compelling photo essay that is certain to challenge and inform young readers.
