The challenge continues with recent attempts to continue uranium mining on the Colorado Plateau and near Grand Canyon. Other Native American tribes, stand to be subjected to the impacts of Uranium Mining. "Yellow Dirt" provides the historical context as to understand this complex issue and the shameful disregard for Native Americans.
This semester I wrote a 10-page paper for my English 2 and Native American History courses on the uranium mining on Navajo lands. I bought this book after seeing Judy Pasternak's LA Times articles on the topic, and it saved me a LOT of trouble. Her work is spectacularly documented, so if you find yourself needing more elaboration on a topic you can easily dig up the source document. The grades I received were 98% and 100% using this source and ones I found through it for over half of my citations.
This book is a MUST HAVE resource for anyone looking to enhance their knowledge on the worst nuclear disasters in United States history, whether it's for personal or professional uses.
AND... if you haven't read them yet, you must read 'Lies My Teacher Told Me' & 'Savage Kingdom' (among others). The truth about America is sickening... !
