"What this world needs is some peace and quiet" -- this I have long believed and so, with a passion, does Gordon Hempton. Here he meticulously documents an attempted cross-USA nature journey, armed with a dBA meter. More power to him in his efforts to be a present-day John Muir and Rachel Carson with respect to noise pollution. And may he have many emulators.
