Follow David and Janet Carle as they travel the 38th Parallel seeking water-related environmental and cultural connections. Their book, TRAVELING THE 38th PARALLEL: A WATER LINE AROUND THE WORLD is published by the University of California Press (2013). They have crossed the U.S., Europe, Turkey, Turkmenistan, China, and Korea, and Japan. Why 38°N? See the answer posted in September 2009
Traveling the 38th Parallel, a Water Line around the World links
on production of our 38th Parallel book at UC Press: looks like the
cover will have a Rick Kattelmann aerial photo of the Mono Lake basin;
looks like the title will be Traveling the 38th Parallel: a water line
around the world; a copy editor is working on the text during the
coming weeks; flyers for the book (which will be out in February/March)
may even be available soon! On an opening page, this epigraph will appear, quoting David Gaines from a Mono Lake Committee newsletter in 1986: "If nature can heal an injured land, it can heal our...souls as well. That's why saving Mono Lake is a matter of saving, and healing, ourselves. Let's not change the planet. Let the planet change us."
