Amity and Prosperity: One Family and the Fracturing of America.
Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2018.
2019 Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction.
What happens when a poet/journalist encounters a community torn apart by fracking? A powerful and memorable story that is also a very readable primer on the subject. It would be useful to parents and teachers who need to answer children's questions on the controversy over fossil fuels and pipelines.
I listened to the excellent audiobook, narrated by Tavia Gilbert.
I am an author and folklorist based in Portland, Oregon.
