Author documents the health, environmental and spiritual impact of uranium mining on the Navajo and Pueblo nations of the Southwest and details the very sad relationship between the Native nations and the US government . Detailed and well researched, this book was challenging as a causal read, but the interviews in the appendix were deeply moving. I gave it 4 stars because the justice implications are immense for anyone interested in America's nuclear history or SW Native/ US govt. relations.

Liked: (If I remember correctly) The author does a good job of documenting and giving historical context.. Covers the impact on the land and people of uranium mining in the southwest reservations. A sad book, with no happy ending.
