Book Overview
For decades, the Nevada desert's rugged beauty has veiled its use as a nuclear weapons testing site. Now another crisis looms over the Yucca Mountains--their consideration as the proposed national repository for nuclear waste. Kuletz combines scientific data with interviews with scientists and local Native Americans to shed light on this global controversy. Photos/illustrations.
