Poems by Douglas Worth
From the publisher:
This book of poetry ranges back through history to the 1600s and pleads with mankind to attend to the massive damage technological advancement is bringing to the biosphere. The poems warn that blindness to these changes, which wantonly destroy that understructure upon which life depends, will make the future of man a wasteland and a devastation. A single locale, Hemlock Gorge, a bypassed island of natural beauty immersed in the head-on rush of modern technological culture, is used to illustrate these dangers.
