When he watched mountaintop removal mining raze the mountain all around his home and family's land on Kayford Mountain in West Virginia, Larry Gibson became one of the country's first people to speak out against this extreme and egregiously irresponsible mining practice.

He has started a foundation, saved land, been in documentary movies, spoken at thousands of community meetings and shown thousands of people the destruction of mountaintop removal first hand by opening his property up visitors.
