Guggenheim fellow Eliza Griswold tracked the Haney family and their community’s battle against the oil and gas industry after fracking came to their town. Her tale of 45 people in four lawsuits details a tight web of energy production, politics and environmentalism; health and infrastructure costs; urban and rural ideas of energy creation and use; the kitchen table and the state supreme court; and faith and scandal. These issues are complex, alarming, tragic and ongoing. All energy and water consumers who value their health will welcome Griswold’s insights into the benefits and harms of fracking.
