Just Fine The Way They Are – "If the current crop of children's books doesn't make environmentalists out of the next generation, I don't know what will…bursting with imagination, great stories, exhilarating ideas and wonderful art. How we move around our country — Cars? Bicycles? High-speed rail? — is a big issue in environmentalism, and "Just Fine the Way They Are" shows readers that making decisions about technical progress is not always easy. Beginning in 1805 and hitting every new transportation fad along the way, the book gives a history of U.S. roads, from dirt track to superhighway. At every point, there were people who embraced new technologies…and people who thought things were "just fine the way they were." That's a fine philosophical debate to introduce to budding environmentalists."
