Summary
"In Dawn at Mineral King: The Sierra Club, the Disney Company, and the Rise of Environmental Law law professor Daniel Selmi chronicles a seminal case that opened a new field of law: environmental protection. It shows how, against long odds, the Sierra Club prevented the Walt Disney Company from building a massive ski resort in the magnificent Mineral King Valley of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Proposed in 1965, the vast Disney development would have irretrievably altered the relatively untouched Mineral King Valley in the Southern Sierra Nevada mountains. The Sierra Club's lawsuit against the development went to the United States Supreme Court and resulted in an immensely important decision that not only ultimately preserved the Mineral King Valley but also opened the way for environmental groups to challenge other destructive projects throughout the country by finding that public interest groups had "standing" or the right to bring lawsuits like this. The story is set against the backdrop of the environmental movement that suddenly emerged and swept the country in the late 1960s and early 1970s"--
