Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The federal government subsidized uranium mining during the early 1950s in preparation for the coming atomic age, endangering both the finances and health of prospectors. ``Ringholz intrigues the reader with an expert blending of science, adventure, industry mania, finance, human triumph and despair--and shameful official neglect,'' PW said. (Mar.)
An unaltered reprint of the W.W. Norton edition of 1989. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
