About this book

The true story of a family's move to an idyllic oasis, Grantsville, Utah, on the edge of the Great Basin Desert. They soon discover disturbing tales of local sickness and realize that incidents of cancer and birth defects are legion. This is the tale of a seven year quest to understand Grantsville's hidden history of ecocide, and a stirring account of how the lessons learned in the wilderness were later applied to building opposition to hazardous waste disposal, chemical weapons incineration, industrial pollution and nuclear waste storage.

Media reviews
This book is a must read. For the beauty of the nature writing, for the humor, the intelligence, and the details on a community organization becoming a national power ... The experiences of Chip Ward need a series of books detailing his successes and failures. We could all learn from him."" - Sierra Club "This call to clipboards for local activism is both hopeful and damning: a gift to the next generation and a warning that, in the end, there is no upwind." - Publishers Weekly "Not just a memoir but a manual for citizen activism. It may be a manifesto, but its humor and informality - in and among the hair-raising details - make it an entertaining one." - Boston Globe
