Plutopia by Kate Brown

Title:  Plutopia

Author: Kate Brown


This book will be of interest to those who have an interest in the nuclear buildup in the United States and Russia during the 1940’s and the years following.  The author, through meticulous research shares a fascinating (and sometimes frightening) history of two cities, Richland and Ozersk where the respective governments built factories to produce plutonium for military purposes.  It may not a book to read for relaxation purposes but if one resides in Eastern Washington it is a book to read.
