Read by Tavia Gilbert.
Prize winning poet and journalist Eliza Griswold's Amity and Prosperity is an expose on how fracking shattered a rural Pennsylvania town, and how one lifelong resident brought the story into the national spotlight. This is an incredible true account of investigative journalism and a devastating indictment of energy politics in America.
REVIEWS & SUMMARIESSummary / Annotation
A fascinating look at how fracking affects people's lives submitted by TeacherN on July 26, 2019, 8:52am I heard about this book when listening to the podcast, Why Is This Happening with Chris Hayes. The author explained how she spent seven years following one family as they struggled with the effects of fracking. I think the book shows a very balanced view of the topic, why many people in the community support it, but also the devastating effects. I honestly could not put this book down.
