Oil drills in the desert

Yellow Earth

by John Sayles Author

An instant classic that follows the chaos and greed that come after rich layers of oil are discovered underneath the town of Yellow Earth. Locals, law enforcement officers, oil workers, Native activists, politicians, casinos, opportunists, and a wildlife bioligist commingle and collide as the town population triples overnight. Sayles delves into the history and characters, creating a modern-day parable of exploitation, sustainability, and the impossible choices of contemporary capitalism.
