Read it. It's a bit dry in parts, and you may be a little disappointed if you were drawn in by the lurid title. But read it. All about Earle Reynolds and his family who sailed into a restricted area in the southern Pacific to protest above-ground atomic bomb testing in the 1950s. Having just finished reading it (well, I'm down to the last several pages), I consider myself to be a lot more enlightened about a lot of things. This book illustrates just one of the ways that we, the American people have all been handed a bill of goods, have been required to finance something that in no way is beneficial to our well-being. After Reynolds' arrest on the high seas, there were subsequent legal battles that frankly embarrassed our government. I hope you'll read this and get pissed-off as I did. Also read Albert Bigelow's Voyage of the Golden Rule. By the way, and I don't mean to brag (well, yeah I do), but I was somebody who had the privilege of crewing aboard the Golden Rule this past summer of 2017, from Eureka to San Francisco. So, in at least a tangential way, I'm a part of the legacy of all this. Except I did it the safe way, dispensing with all the troubles with federal courts and jails and all that.
