Letters From Under the Mushroom CloudeBook - 2012
Ray Hoy is one of the dwindling number of so-called "Atomic Soldiers" who provided support for the nuclear bomb tests at Camp Desert Rock, Nevada in the 1950s. While there he began writing letters to his late father, describing the awe-inspiring above ground nuclear detonations he witnessed, and what life was like in what he called, "The Mushroom Garden." Unlike thousands of his fellow soldiers, Hoy has lived to tell about his experiences in this poignant collection of letters to his father.
