This was a bookclub read. It is a collection of essays by Kentucky authors including Bobby Ann Mason and Silas House about the effects of mountain top removal for coal mining.

The authors visit Kentucky towns where mtn top removal has devastated the natural habitat and made communities unlivable. Eye-opening and emotional, this book shows the devastation going on in our own backyards.
