Description

"In 1980, Exxon U.S.A., the world's largest corporation, began development of a $5-billion oil shale industry in the pristine Colorado River Valley. Within eighteen months, Exxon had canceled its elaborate Colony Project and 2,100 workers were immediately laid off. Boomtown Blues: Colorado Oil Shale 1885-1985 chronicles the social, environmental and economic havoc created by one of the most expensive boom and bust cycles in the history of the American West. This 100-year historical account of the turbulent oil shale industry describes exploration and settlement in the Colorado River Valley as well as land ownership changes brought about since the first boom of 1915-1925. Included are poignant personal interviews, a comprehensive bibliography, and a critical review of Exxon's infamous "white paper" on the future of synthetic fuels in the United States. Boomtown Blues will be an important reference for historians, social scientists, environmentalists, policymakers, city planners, and all those who care about the fate of the American West"--Book jacket.
