Description - The Firecracker Boys by Dan O'Neill

In 1958, Edward Teller, father of the H-bomb, unveiled his plan to detonate six nuclear bombs off the Alaskan coast to create a new harbor. However, the plan was blocked by a handful of Eskimos and biologists who succeeded in preventing massive nuclear devastation potentially far greater than that of the Chernobyl blast. The Firecracker Boys is a story of the U. S. governments arrogance and deception, and the brave people who fought against it-launching Americas environmental movement. As one of Alaskas most prominent authors, Dan ONeill brings to these pages his love of Alaskas landscape, his skill as a nature and science writer, and his determination to expose one of the most shocking chapters of the Nuclear Age.
