It leads to the inescapable conclusion that the United States of American conducted systematic nuclear experiments on its own people and has lied about it to this day. "...Foreword by Keith Schneider. "Minutes before the first light of dawn on January 27, 1951, an Air Force B-50 bomber banked left over the juniper and Joshua trees and dropped an atomic bomb on the desert west of Las Vegas. The flash of light awakened ranchers in northern Utah. The concussion shattered windows in Arizona. The radiation swept across America, contaminating the soils of Iowa and Indiana, the coastal bays of New England, and the snows of northern New York. Thus began the most prodigiously reckless program of scientific experimentation in United States history. Over the next 12 years, the government's nuclear cold warriors detonated 126 atomic bombs into the atmosphere at the1, 350-square-mile Nevada Test Site. EACH of the pink clouds that drifted across the flat mesas and forbidden valleys of the atomic proving grounds contained levels of radiation comparable to the amount released after the explosion in 1986 of the Soviet nuclear reactor at Chernobyl. "..."This book is a surpassingly careful recounting of human turmoil and official indifference. It is part of an American tradition of oral history and documentary photograhy that transcends other art forms in keeping alive bruising political eras. Gallagher has brought us face to face with the victims of another painful chapter in American history. " The personal stories of test site workers, soldiers, and downwind civilians, with documentary b/w photographs. Four pages of maps.
