Read from December 02 to 09, 2011

This is a book for our current times. In the USA and Australia in particular there are small communities suffering from the mining companies. Sure this may be extreme the story told here but it is none the less possible, if not actually happening. Certainly in the poorer countries there are whole towns/villages being decimated.

The whole social fabric of a small town that is at the lower end of the socio-economic scale can suffer by false promises of mining companies.

This book is fiction but it may not be. It is almost depressing but an important read for those fighting for our land against greedy mining corporations.

The story is about people at their rawest. It is sad and depressing but still compelling.
