The worst occupational health disaster in American history occurred nearly fifty years ago when hundreds of men died and over a thousand fell ill from acute silicosis contracted during the building of Union Carbide's Hawk's Nest Tunnel through Gauley Mountain in West Virginia. Presenting startling new evidence based on his extensive examination of local historical material, survivor interviews, and county death records, Dr. Martin Cherniack tells the story of that all-but-forgotten event and clarifies what happened and how the issue was resolved.
