I'm normally wary of religious fanatics and early on I questioned what kind of person this man really was. By the end you know he's a good man trying to defend his family. The story is heartbreaking. They move to the middle of nowhere to be left alone and almost immediately they end up having to fight off a gas company wanting to drill on their land. It turns out Canada is even worse than the United States and you have no real property rights. If an oil or gas company wants to drill on your land they have every right to do so and they don't owe you a cent of compensation. They managed to keep them off their land but to thumb their nose at the family the company drilled all around them including up wind and a short distance from their property. The family had animals die and five or six stillborn babies. They had to flee several times due to chemical fumes and everyone including the children got sick. As it was ending all but one of their water wells had been polluted and that last well was near a brand new well that apparently had breached the water table and was mixing gas with the water. Yes they are accused of bombing wells and causing damage but that started after the animal and human deaths. All I can say about that is what would you do when your people were literally dying and you were loosing everything you worked for? It's hard to lay blame since the gas company was never made accountable for the devastation they caused. There was a death of a local as well but when you hear how it happened once again it seemed to be in self defense and no charges were brought. We've surrendered our humanity to corporate control and the only law of the land is corporate greed trumps everything. Before this I thought Canada was better than the US about such things but they are in truth worse.Read more ›

What a courageous man, his family too. I loved how they lived, there must be so many families this has happened to. So many untold stories of injustice. Folks betrayed by the system. Thanks Amazon for making available.
