To Slay a Giant - Book

To Slay a Giant, written by John J. Mutter, Jr., is about the two-year struggle to get a Sulfide Mining Moratorium Bill passed into law in Wisconsin.

Exxon had discovered the ore body in 1975 and wanted desperately to get the permits to mine gold, silver, copper, and zinc near Crandon, Wisconsin. But many people were skeptical because this huge mining venture was so close to the headwaters of the pristine Wolf River. The proposed mine site was even closer to a small American Indian tribe which feared the end of their existence should the project be approved.

All the pieces were in place for arguably, the largest issue the State of Wisconsin had ever had to deal with. Common everyday people, along with professional, concerned citizens from all parts of the state joined hands with their ancestral American neighbors to challenge one of the wealthiest corporations in the world. This was a classic environmental confrontation, it was as grass roots as it gets.

John J. Mutter, Jr., an award-winning writer, was in the environmental trenches during this fight. He tells what happened and reveals many occurrences that the news media never found out about. To Slay a Giant is an important book for anyone who is concerned about our environment and the protection of planet Earth!

Paperback is 6 x 9 in. and 176 pages.
