Dayne Pratzsky, also known as “The Frackman,” takes on the energy giants. Once a diesel-chugging homesteader, he is now an accidental activist who just wants to protect his property and the local environment from Australia’s fracking industry. But as the roar of Halliburton machines envelops his home, will his passionate protest persist? A story of love, tragedy, triumphs, camouflage, and good old-fashioned Australian swearing.
