From Thine Own Well: Canada After The Fracking

By Norm Hamilton

Action & adventure, Sci-Fi, General fiction | Paperback, eBook


Disillusioned former Yukon mining exploration worker, Landon McGuire, is torn from his self-imposed exile into a Canada he no longer recognizes. Water is a precious commodity, and the environment is contaminated. Individual rights are non-existent and corporate rule is the law--a law enforced by the corporation's own brutal militia. Unregulated fracking and irresponsible mining have destroyed the watersheds. A small group of people band together to combat the ruling coalition, but find themselves embroiled in a dangerous game. Landon meets Nora and is drawn into the fray. What begins as a fact-finding mission turns deadly as they get closer to the truth. Deceit, threats and violence emphasize the reality that economy trumps environment even when lives are at stake. "This is a truly thought-provoking story that people need to read. I enjoyed the plot twists and the vivid description, the tension and moments of humour." Erin Potter, Shamrock Editing "A sensitive topic, spiced up and delivered with insight and originality, as tense as it is thought-provoking." Matt Kruze, Author of Crime Mysteries "...the action scenes in particular are viscerally realistic -- I almost felt the various injuries myself!" Lawrence Purdy
