About The Event
The once idyllic coastal plain of North Carolina is home to a closely knit, rural community that, for more than a generation, has battled the polluting practices of large-scale farming taking place in its own backyard. As vivid and fast-paced as a novel, Wastelands takes us into the heart of a legal battle over the future of America’s farmland, and into the lives of the people who found the courage to fight. With unparalleled entrée to the courtroom, Corban Addison captures the stirring and unforgettable struggle to bring a modern-day monopoly to its knees, to force a once invincible corporation to change, and to preserve the rights—and restore the heritage—of a long-suffering community.
"Beautifully written, impeccably researched, and told with the air of suspense that few writers can handle, Wastelands is a story I wish I had written." —John Grisham
