The Cyanide Canary: A Story of Injustice | [Joseph Hilldorfer, Robert Dugoni]

The Cyanide Canary: A Story of Injustice

This story of environmental injustice begins with young Scott Dominquez of Soda Springs, Idaho. He reports to his job at Evergreen Resources, an acid-fertilizing production facility, on the morning of August 27, 1996. By 11 o'clock that morning, he had been pulled from a poison-storage tank, barely alive and severely brain-damaged. Saddened and outraged by what had happened to Scott, EPA Special Agent Joseph Hilldorfer began a relentless battle to bring Evergreen's owner, Allan Elias, to justice.

Publisher's Summary

This story of environmental injustice, at a level not seen since A Civil Action and Erin Brockovich, begins with young Scott Dominquez of Soda Springs, Idaho. He reports to his job at Evergreen Resources, an acid-fertilizing production facility, on the morning of August 27, 1996. By 11 o'clock that morning, he had been pulled from a poison-storage tank, barely alive and severely brain-damaged.

Saddened and outraged by what had happened to Scott, EPA Special Agent Joseph Hilldorfer began a relentless battle to bring Evergreen's owner, Allan Elias, to justice. Elias had used the tank to store cyanide and phosphoric acid - the chemicals used by the Nazis for their "Final Solution" - all the while assuring his workers that the tank's contents were safe.

    "Ok I'm biased"

    I am in the same line of work as the author so I am a bit biased. I have felt the same way and seen the same results...but it is nice to see the good guys win one.

    "I wanted to llke this book"

    I really thought the description of this book sounded interesting. I admit that I tried two or three times to listen to it all the way through but I never did. It just didn't hold my attention and I would get interested in doing other things and forget to listen. Maybe I will give it another try sometime.
