Peter Ralph

Author Peter Ralphabout this book: When a huge energy corporation cons farmers and landowners into letting it have access to their land in the pristine Fisher valley, all hell breaks loose.

It drills and fracks coal seams deep below the surface, without caring for the air, ground and water it's polluting.

When a young boy dies from a mysterious form of cancer, his father is convinced it's the energy corporation's fault. Determined to stop it, he sets off with his faithful dog in the middle of the night to destroy the toxin producing wells.

An unholy alliance of farmers, greens and conservatives quickly join the cause, but the energy corporation has rapacious governments, the police, and army on its side.

Will the farmers prevail or will the energy corporation crush them?


Highly commended in the 2012 Fellowship of Australian Writers Barbara Ramsden Award.

• I moved to the country for peace and quiet and little did I know that I would become embroiled in the battle of my life. Peter Ralph brings to light the everyday struggle of people who find their lives suddenly caught up with one of the most insidious industries in the world -
Coal Seam Gas. — Dayne Pratzky aka The Frackman

• Peter Ralph has sensitively and dramatically portrayed the heavy price that will be paid by rural Australia if this industry goes ahead as planned. His story brings home to us the need for all Australians to see themselves as custodians of this beautiful land. — Drew Hutton, President of Lock the Gate
