In March 1989, the Exxon Valdez spilled approximately 11 million gallons of oil when it ran aground in one of the largest oil spills in the history of the United States. This book details the timeline of the oil spill, examining reasons for the accident, the inefficient system that impeded cleanup efforts, and the effects of the extensive spill on the pristine environment of Prince William Sound, Alaska. Coverage includes long-term effects on both humans and wildlife in addition to a review of the reparations paid by the oil company and oil policy changes enacted by Congress after this disaster.
