About the Artist's Book

4 3 2 CRY exposes the effects of hydraulic fracturing for natural gas upon families, land, air and water in the author’s former home in Northern Colorado. After a 34 year absence, the author returns to the Johnstown Farm, a home she shared with her young husband, who tragically lost his life in a farming accident. The book is a meditation on personal loss as well as a lament for a community transformed by drilling operations and leads to the author’s call to stop hydraulic fracturing in the USA.
