This is an HEIRLOOM BOOK. From the dust jacket flap: "A mother and baby look through a window at a view of wilderness and sky as far as the eye can see. The boy grows and the scene changes. At first, in a cleared patch of forest, a single house appears. A few years go by and there is a village in the distance. By the time the boy is twenty, the village has developed into a city. The young man gets married, has a child of his own, and movers to the country. Now father and child look through the window in their new home. The view again is of wilderness, but in a cleared patch of forest across the road a prophetic sigh reads: "House Blocks for Sale. " From the back page, Author's Note: " We are changing the face of our world at an alarming and an increasing pace. From the present rates of destruction, we can estimate that by the year 2020 no wilderness will remain on our planet, outside that protected in national parks and reserves. By the same year 2020, a quarter of our present plant and animal species will be extinct if we continue at the current growing page of change. Already, at least two species become extinct each hour. Our planet is changing before our eyes. However, by understanding and changing the way we personally affect the environment, we can make a difference"
