    Not One Drop and Black Wave: Set

    In Not One Drop: Betrayal and Courage in the Wake of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill, Author Riki Ott—a rare combination of commercial salmon "fisherm'am" and PhD marine biologist—describes firsthand the impacts of oil companies' broken promises when the Exxon Valdez spills most of its cargo and despoils thousands of miles of shore. The documentary film Black Wave is a heartbreaking account of the environmental, social, and economic consequences of the spill that changed the lives of the people of Cordova, Alaska, forever.
