A history of environmental activism on Alabama's Gulf Coast from 1970 to the current day. One day we might each face a Goliath in our lives and it’s important to realize a David resides in all of us. In the 1970’s, while Myrt Jones was still a fledging environmentalist, she squared off against her first Goliath: Mobil Oil. Mobil had applied for a permit to drill in her beloved Mobile Bay and she wasn’t having it. Armed with tenacity, knowledge and fearlessness, Myrt, along with others, delayed Mobil’s permit for eight years! Defeating Mobil Oil was her first victory and fueled a determination to take on all comers who threatened the health and well-being of ALL the inhabitants in her beloved Alabama’s Gulf Coast. Myrt quickly learned the power of one is remarkable, but the power of many can be awe-inspiring. She wrote Chronicle of an Eco Warrior in order to share her invaluable experiences as an environmental activist with the fervent hope she can inspire others to stand up and fight for what they believe in.
