Summary In 1978, a local reporter horrified the nation with his award-winning expose of the Love Canal toxic waste scandal in Niagara Falls. Now, in his chilling account of America's most devastating ecological problem, that reporter, Michael Brown, tells the whole Love Canal story, and exposes more of the thousands of chemical waste dumps across the United States that have contaminated our water, our soil - the very air we breathe - causing life-threatening medical problems for innocent victims. Not since Rachel Carson's Silent Spring have we been so boldly challenged to halt the relentless destruction of our environment - and ourselves.
