Fraga presents a comprehensive account of how a small town in the Bible Belt became a model of ecological sustainability. On May 4, 2007, an EF5 tornado destroyed the town of Greensburg in south central Kansas. Immediately after the catastrophe, the leaders and citizens of Greensburg decided to rebuild, and to revitalize their home as the greenest town in America. Five years later, Greensburg now can claim the greatest concentration of buildings that meet LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) platinum certification, the highest degree of sustainability, in this country. The community has been revitalized, and is thriving economically, spiritually and ecologically.
