Sitting at the northwest edge of Cambridge, Massachusetts, Fresh Pond Reservation has been described as a "landscape loved to death." Certainly it is a landscape that has been changed by its various uses over the years and one to which Cantabridgians and Bostonians have felt an intense attachment. The pond itself -- a natural lake carved out by the retreating Ice Age about 15,000 years ago -- was also a center of the 19th-century ice industry and still supplies the city of Cambridge with fresh drinking water. This book tells the story of the pond and its surrounding land through photographs, drawings, maps, plans, and an engaging narrative of the pond's geological, historical, and political ecology.
