In the 1970s Chip Ward and his wife left the Sleeping Rainbow Ranch in Capitol Reef National Park to raise their children in Grantsville, Utah. Yet, their idyllic life was disrupted by disturbing tales of local sickness and death. A seven year quest to understand a hidden history of ecocide ensued.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Not just a memoir but a manual for citizen activism. It may be a manifesto, but its humor and informality--in and among the hair-raising details--make it an entertaining one."--Boston Globe

"This book is a must read. For the beauty of the nature writing, for the humor, the intelligence, and the details on a community organization becoming a national power ... The experiences of Chip Ward need a series of books detailing his successes and failures. We could all learn from him."--Sierra Club

"This call to clipboards for local activism is both hopeful and damning: a gift to the next generation and a warning that, in the end, there is no upwind."--Publishers Weekly
