Ducktown Smoke: The Fight over One of the South’s Greatest Environmental Disasters (University of North Carolina Press, 2011). This is an exploration of the smoke litigation that arose from environmental damage caused sulfur dioxide pollution generated by the copper industry at the Georgia – Tennessee border, and of how the private smoke suits led to the Supreme Court’s first air pollution case, Georgia v.
