John Sayles - Yellow Earth

Family

A writer, actor, and filmmaker, Sayles has directed eighteen feature films, including Matewan and Lone Star, and has twice been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. His new novel revives the spirit of the Wild West to trace the arc of a classic boom-and-bust cycle, exploring a clash of world views when shale oil is discovered on the site of the Three Nations reservation in North Dakota. As the drilling and fracking get underway, the reservation—rebranded the Three Nations Petroleum Company—is beset by a hoard of get-rich-quick opportunists, who stick around until a global dip in oil prices ends the fun.
