Lost Mountain: A Year in the Vanishing Wilderness Radical Strip Mining and the Devastation of Appalachia
By Reece, Erik        
Paperback - English

This groundbreaking work of literary nonfiction exposes how radical strip mining is destroying one of America's most precious natural resources and the communities--particularly in Appalachia--that depend upon it. ...A new form of strip mining has caused a state of emergency for the Appalachian wilderness and the communities that depend on it-a crisis compounded by issues of government neglect, corporate hubris, and class conflict. In this powerful call to arms, Erik Reece chronicles the year he spent witnessing the systematic decimation of a single mountain and offers a landmark defense of a national treasure threatened with extinction.
