Through a highly engaging and readable text, we join a mixed group of farmers, tradespeople, and resident academics in rural upstate New York as they are born in the realization that acting together, non-violently, and with sacrificial resolve, they can protect their beloved lands and everyone's futures from ill-thought governmental-industrial dumping of nuclear waste in their midst.
The beauty of the book is the author's letting the people speak for themselves as they each face personal and sometimes professional challenges in the unfolding drama of building effective resistance to bad government policy. Here you read how real folks in a real drama make significant change not only in their own back yards, but through subsequent Supreme Court decisions to their activity, for the nation as a whole.
This is must reading for:
- people anywhere being 'put upon' by greedy corporate or careless government actions,
- students of the efficacy of non-violent civil disobedience in the modern age,
- cynics who may feel there are inseperable bounderies between the "classes" in our society preventing thereby meaningful political action,
- and, in it's final dramatic chapters, lovers of horses.
Read it and enjoy!

This book tells the story of people in a rural Upstate NY county that was slated to receive nuclear waste as mandated by the federal govt. Find out how their movement changed the course of America because they refused to accept that they were "economically and politically powerless". Inspiring and educational.
