The People of Three Mile Island
Sierra Club Books, 1980 - Biography & Autobiography - 127 pages
"They're ordinary people. They live in villages and towns and cities, in southeastern Pennsylvania. They work farms, go to school, run businesses. But since the threatening events that began March 28, 1979, at the nearby nuclear power plant, they have lived in a unique crucible of fear, anger, and confusion. In The people of Three Mile Island you'll see the faces and hear the voices of these Americans who are still under extraordinary conditions. Nearly without comment, photographer Robert Del Tredici introduces a retired civil engineer who was the first eyewitness to "the accident", a Christian minister whose faith remains unshaken by events, a nursing home director who cooly supervised a rushed evacuation, a husband and wife whose cows mysteriously died, a woman anguished over the abortion she never intended to have, and many others, including NRC, state, and Metropolitan Edison officials."--Page 4 de la couverture.
