Once an inspiration two writers and artists and a rich source of livelihood for fisherman, the Hudson River, by the 1960s, had been transformed by pollution from a national treasure into a national joke. Here two leaders of the successful Hudson Riverkeeper organization recount the investigations, the court battles, and the ultimate triumph in reclaiming the most basic human right of all--the right to a safe environment.
