George P. Mitchell:
Fracking, Sustainability, and an Unorthodox Quest to Save the Planet
By Loren C. Steffy
In George P. Mitchell: Fracking, Sustainability, and an Unorthodox Quest to Save the Planet, award-winning author Loren C. Steffy offers the first definitive biography of Mitchell, placing his life and legacy in a global context, from the significance of his discoveries to the lingering controversies they inspired. Anyone who puts fuel in a tank or turns on a light switch has benefited from Mitchell’s efforts.
