Dutch-born Wiebo Ludwig, former leader of a Christian Reformed Church in Goderich, Ontario, and his entourage, which consisted of his…ever-growing family and a few sympathizers, decamped for Alberta in 1985 and bought a place called Trickle Creek - in oil country. What ensued was a long, nasty, and often violent conflict between Ludwig and the oil and gas industry over its legal right to drill on private land, regardless of landowners' concerns over the contamination of air and water by the pollutants that spew out of the wells. Some strong language and descriptions of violence. Winner of the 2002 Governor General's Award for Non-fiction. 2002.
