Booklist, published by the American Library Association, named its Top 10 Books on the Environment: 2009.
What was included in the list? Greasy Rider, of course--right above Tom Friedman's "Hot, Flat, and Crowded."
Here's the blurb:
"Melville’s larky tale of a coast-to-coast road trip in a car running on french-fry oil, including stops at a wind farm, a renewable energy lab, and a green home, is splendidly entertaining and educational. "
