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.
