'But what about the people?' That is the question author Dale Slongwhite kept asking herself when she learned about the environmental damage wrought on the farm lands and Lake Apopka by deadly pesticides. A writer and writing instructor from Florida, she recently committed herself to exploring the human angle of an environmental and political issue that has plagued that state’s Lake Apopka region for the last thirty years. After listening to the individual stories of a forgotten population of farm workers, Dale’s life was altered forever. It is her hope and intention that these heart wrenching personal histories will shine a light on the emotional and physical suffering experienced by a marginalized group of people who worked to supply the country with produce while being exposed daily to deadly chemicals.
