The Botanical Heritage of Islands at the Brink of Niagara Falls, by P.
M. Eckel, just was published. It benchmarks efforts to restore the
scenery at Niagara Falls begun in 1885. Those interested in what
vegetation at Niagara Falls has survived determined efforts to preserve
the raw native landscape at the Falls by "developing" the scenery while
at the same time developing a power generating complex, and those with a
concern for restoration ecology and conservation at iconic American
beauty spots might find this readable book of value.
