Harlan County, Kentucky: McKinley Sumner's Disappearing Backyard

McKinley Sumner heard a sound his backyard one day, and realized something wasn't right. When he walked to the edge of his property line, he found tractors from the abutting coal mine digging into his land. Soon he saw his local creek, once clean and healthy, turn brown and muddy. This is the story of McKinley Sumner's fight to protect his property.
