Merritt_Iron coverGrant Merritt will be at Chapters on Saturday, February 2 at 1:00 p.m. for a reading and signing of his new book, Iron and Water: My Life Protecting Minnesota's Environment.


Iron and Water is Grant J. Merritt’s memoir of his life’s work on behalf of Minnesota’s people and environment and also the story of a family significant in state history. Chronicling the discovery of vast iron deposits on the Mesabi Range and the fight to save Lake Superior and Minnesota’s natural riches, Merritt reveals how individuals can change the world.


"Iron and Water is really about the passionate commitment and valiant effort of a man and his concerned colleagues to ensure that Minnesota’s environment is protected. In that respect, Grant Merritt’s enthralling story is a model for activists everywhere." —Foreword Reviews


"Merritt weaves a narrative of not only his own life, but that of the development of mining and environmental policy of Minnesota and the Iron Range and the development of the state’s Environmental Quality Agency." —The Timberjay
