New contemporary fiction shines a brutal light on the toxic chemical use by the gas drilling industry that exacts a heavy toll on all life forms. The novel tells the raw story of a nuclear family who live in intimate harmony with the land. Their world is torn apart by effects of hydraulic fracturing, fracking, beneath their ancestral home.

Writing the book, Brindle 24, I was inspired by the brave people who shared their experiences about the impact of gas drilling on their lives. They are 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.
