Summary
Stacey Haney is a local nurse working hard to raise two kids and keep up her small farm when the fracking boom comes to her hometown of Amity, Pennsylvania. Intrigued by reports of lucrative natural gas leases in her neighbors? mailboxes, she strikes a deal with a Texas-based energy company. Soon trucks begin rumbling past her small farm, a fenced-off drill site rises on an adjacent hilltop, and domestic animals and pets start to die. When mysterious sicknesses begin to afflict her children, she appeals to the company for help. Its representatives insist that nothing is wrong. Alarmed by her children?s illnesses, 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?s being done to the land her family has lived on for centuries
