Summary:"On a damp August morning in 1995, a group of schoolchildren in
Minnesota came upon a pond filled with frogs - including some with
extra legs, some with missing legs, some with legs twisted like
corkscrews. It was only the beginning. Since then, extraordinary
numbers of deformed frogs have been discovered, not only in the
waters of Minnesota, but in lakes and ponds across the country,
Canada, and as far away as Japan.".
"A Plague of Frogs follows the mystery of the frogs and the urgent
search for answers. William Souder, the journalist who first broke
the story for The Washington Post, has had exclusive access to all of
the key scientists, and has personally followed every aspect of the
story, from back room discussions and conferences at the federal
government level to the secret hot spots where the highest percentage
of deformed frogs are found."--BOOK JACKET.
