Writing the book, Brindle 24, I was inspired by the brave people who publicly shared their experiences about the impact of fracking on their lives. They are American farmers, singers, poets, physicians, and scientists who exercised their freedom of expression. I thank them.
Brindle 24 is dedicated to the memory of Upton Sinclair.
