On the banks of the Missouri River, the town of Yellow Earth and the Three Nations reservation prepare for an invasion—the ground beneath their feet is loaded with readily frackable shale oil and the minions of corporate energy are rushing to extract it. Tribal Chairman Harleigh Kildeer welcomes Big Oil with open arms, while county sheriff Will Crowder has to deal with the overnight influx of roughnecks, truckers, drug dealers, and sex workers.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“John Sayles is a living master. Yellow Earth reminds me what novels are for.” Jennifer Haigh, author of Heat and Light
“Sayles expresses his compassion and concern for those who struggle with poverty and prejudice, seeking both to provoke and entertain.” Booklist (starred review)
“Sayles has created a tale of people and place bewitched and bedeviled by money and power, ultimately convinced to join in the destruction of their lands and their lives. Not only is his story believable, it could easily be a work of nonfiction.” Counter Punch
