The story of a struggle spearheaded by one man against a whole system of destruction, this book follows Shyam Chainani’s passionate and dedicated battle to save a verdant and wooded island near Mumbai, India, from being taken over by a government-owned oil company. Demonstrating how Chainani fought for Nhava by contacting his vast network of friends and acquaintances—and often making enemies—and utilizing every legal weapon in his armory, this detailed document is filled with humor, wit, and admiration for nature’s beauty.
