Opportunity, Montana (Brad Tyer)

Article by Danielle

Tyer, a Texas reporter who relocated to Montana in search of the unspoiled West, exposes the cost of greed and carelessness in a state that many Americans consider to be the last great frontier. His exposé focuses on the Clark Fork River, which for nearly a century was a dumping ground for industrial waste. Now, well-meaning environmentalists and investors are attempting to restore the river to its original state, but are perhaps doing more harm than good in their efforts. A passionate and complex look at Western environmental concerns.
