SHOWDOWN AT THE BOUZY ROUGE: People v. PG&E, by Tom Nadeau; illus. by Jeri Janis


When a wildfire burned homes and 500 acres of land around the historic town of Rough and Ready, the local district attorney filed 767 criminal charges against the nation's largest investor-owned utility. Special prosecutor Jenny E. Ross used PG&E's own documents to convict the utility giant. A great (true) tale, wonderfully told.
