Abstract:

A fascinating study of conservation, one of the most vital problems affecting America today, written by a disntiguished public servant who is eager for the people to have a full and accurate picture of the subject and its many ramifications. Beginning with an eloquent description of the miracles in the creation of the universe, "Land, Wood, and Water" moves down through the ages to dramatize the various benefits of modern flood control, navigation, power, recreation, soil conservation and municipal and industrial water. Though the world daily grows more sensitive to the ominous echoes of atom bomb blasts and soaring space missiles, man must still learn how.
