    I wish I could give this book 3.5 stars. There are certain parts I really enjoyed, and other parts that were very dry. I really enjoyed getting to know the people she interviewed, but felt it was lacking and not in depth enough. Several of the places and organizations she's mentioned I've been to (like the Mine and Appalachian Sustainable Development) so it was very interesting to learn more about those. And we must not discount the fact that the author is another awesome female Chris. :)
