Description

Rising Up Against Mountaintop Removal Mining Edited by Shirley Stewart Burns, Mari-Lynn Evans, and Silas House Like the powerful film on which it is based, this companion volume gives voice to the growing chorus of protest against mountaintop removal mining in Appalachia through a collection of essays, oral histories, and images. It features many of the personalities from the film in their own words, as well as thoughtful essays by a wide range of eloquent contributors, from writers Wendell Berry, Silas House, and Denise Giardina to entertainers Ashley Judd, Loretta Lynn, and Kathy Mattea. Illustrations include contemporary photographs of this stillbeautiful region, as well as images of Appalachian mining and culture. Published by Sierra Club Books
