Munro is not anti-mining, but she does oppose the inappropriate development of Australia’s coal and coal seam gas industries.

Exposing how often foreign-owned mining and gas companies are heedless of consequences other than money, this book exposes the real human cost of our nation’s mining boom.

Munro tells of her year spent traveling through coal-mining communities in rural Australia, and how she saw the risks this industry posed to these communities' health and spirit.

One of Australia's biggest industries, Munro weighs up the economic benefits to the dangers posed to Australian families.
