Description
In 1958 Edward Teller, father of the H-bomb, unveiled his plan to detonate six nuclear bombs off the Alaskan coast to create a new harbor. The radical plan was blocked by a small but tenacious grassroots protest led by a community of Inupiat Eskimos, scientists, and conservationists, and laid some of the groundwork for the environmental movement that was to follow in the 1960s. The author of A Land Gone Lonesome and The Last Giant of Beringia, Dan O'Neill was named Alaska Historian of the Year by the Alaska Historical Society for this story "of how we nearly Chernobylized our northwest Alaskan wilderness. O'Neill limns in glorious detail the richness of the Arctic wildlife and Eskimo culture.... Consciousness raising at its ecological best."Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
