This ProPublica ebook tells the story of a former gas well worker turned rancher and the problems he experiences due to fracking activities in his region.
The area of Eastern Wyoming plays a central role, where drinking water suddenly turns cloudy, shiny and foul tasting.
The book provides the reader with a short history of gas drilling, current drilling locations, 1980s – present methane drilling, and the hydraulic fracturing boom which begun in the mid 1990s. ...

The book recounts the nightmarish experience of a man who finds his watersupply contaminated - most probably by fracking carried out in the vicinity. We then learn of all the possible negative consequences of fracking on the environment, and of how energy companies lobby hard to prevent environmental controls.

The analysis is strongly one sided, and not particularly scientific, still it had the merit to push me to find out more about fracking. Nevertheless, unless you can borrow it (or get it as a freebie as I did) it contains no information that you could not find elsewhere, and I am not sure the sameinformation could not have conveyed in a much shorter book.
