In 1978, Love Canal first hit the headlines as an entire community struggled with the fact that they were living on top of a toxic waste dump. Within weeks, a grassroots movement forced national decision-makers to pay heed, and the community was evacuated. Love Canal entered modern mythology as one of the most notorious environmental scandals in the world. Yet, 20 years later, homes at Love Canal have been resold, and some 50,000 similar sites remain.

In Love Canal: The Story Continues, Gibbs gives the blow-by-blow account of how she and her fellow residents first became aware of health problems caused by 20,000 tons of toxic chemicals buried beneath the ground.

As people across North America remember the 35th anniversary of this notorious event, Love Canal: The Story Continues will be of immense value to grassroots and community activists everywhere. Highly readable, the book will also appeal to a wide cross section, including public officials, students, and the general reader.
