"An important contribution to the New Western History, Gulliford's full and compassionate portrait of the social consequences of corporate irresponsibility provides Westerners with a prime opportunity to wrestle with the lessons of history."
—Patricia Nelson Limerick, University of Colorado at Boulder

I grew up in Parachute (Grand Valley, Colorado) and enjoy learning more about Oil Shale. My great-grandfather Thomas Bailey was one of the first to realize the value of oil shale.

Very insightful, with lots of applications for other "boomtown" situations occurring now such as the "shale gas" developments in South Texas
