Summary
"In the early hours of March 24th, 1989, the Exxon Valdez oil supertanker runs aground in Alaska. It discharges millions of gallons of crude oil. The incident becomes the biggest environmental catastrophe in North American history...For twenty years, Riki Ott and the fisherman of the little town of Cordova, Alaska have waged the longest legal battle in U.S. history against the world's most powerful oil company -- ExxonMobil. They tell us all about the environmental, social, and economic consequences of the black wave that changed their lives forever." -- Container
