Wasting Libby: The True Story of How the WR Grace Corporation Left a Montana Town to Die (and Got Away with It) (Counterpunch) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wasting Libby chronicles decades of neglect by state and federal agencies, which allowed the Grace corporation to reap millions in profits from the largest vermiculite mine in the world, while knowingly exposing generations of Montana residents to fatal levels of asbestos-contaminated dust. Libby's story, which culminates in the 2009 criminal trial of the corporation's executives, is ultimately the tale of the families who fought Grace for justice, who refused to sacrifice their dignity even as they lost their lives.

With an introduction by actor and environmentalist Jeff Bridges.

Andrea Peacock is the co-author, with Doug Peacock, of The Essential Grizzly.

Synopsis:

An investigation of the greatest environmental crime in US history.
