The journey into Northern California's infamous Emerald Triangle would change the lives of two girls — and the women that followed them — forever.
Big Green Country is a gripping and unforgettable family suspense story lifting the veil from the shrouded secrecy surrounding the ugly underbelly of Northern California's complex cannabis culture.
Culling from her research as an independent journalist at home at the gateway to the region's infamous Redwood Curtain, Frances Rivetti paints a gritty, graphic fictional portrait of the contemporary Green-Rush from one women-driven family's unique perspective — the lure, the benefits, the potential for boom and bust, but most importantly, its impact on the human condition and the real and present danger posed to young women attracted by large cash earnings.
Big Green Country is a controversial crisis of rural poverty, environmental issues, immigration, addiction, a broken health care system, alternative medicine and the stark reality of human trafficking within the region known as the Emerald Triangle.
Frances Rivetti is an Independent Publishers Book Award-winning author of two books of non-fiction: Fog Valley Crush — Love at First Bite and Fog Valley Winter — Pioneer Heritage, Backroad Rambles and Vintage Recipes. She lives in Petaluma, Sonoma County with her husband Timo and rescue dog, Rosie. This is her first novel.
