Into the Gulf: A Journal
Frequent OnEarth contributor David Gessner, author of the books Soaring With Fidel and Sick of Nature, is visiting the Gulf Coast to report about the BP disaster's impact on birds. Along the way, he's introducing us to the people and places he visits and chronicling the disruption to their lives and livelihoods. Follow his dispatches -- and his doodles -- here.
(Update: Gessner's posts will form the basis for his latest book, The Tarball Chronicles, due out in September 2011 from Milkweed Editions.)
