Coal River

Michael Shnayerson talks about his book about mountain top mining in West Virginia and how activists are fighting it in the courts.  "Coal River" was published by Farrar, Strauss, Giroux in 2008. We present an update prepared and written by WPKN's Melinda Tuhus.

Mr. Shanyerson was recorded at Canios Books, Sag Harbor.
