After striking a deal to let an energy company drill near her Pennsylvania farm, Stacey Haney's pets die and her children are afflicted with mysterious illnesses. Alarmed, Haney joins with neighbors and a committed husband-and-wife legal team to investigate what's really in the water and air. Against local opposition, Haney and her allies doggedly pursue their case in court and begin to expose the damage that is being done to the land her family has lived on for centuries. Drawing on seven years of immersive reporting, Eliza Griswold's Pulitzer Prize-winning account reveals what happens when an imperiled town faces a crisis of values, and a family wagers everything on an improbable quest for justice.
