Shell Oil was accustomed to getting its way in Louisiana. With deep pockets, dedicated teams of attorneys, and influential lobbyists, the second largest oil company in the world could demand - and get - virtually anything it wanted. Until, it met the Vernon family. Shell Game is the true account of a nine-year battle that pitted a small Louisiana family against the giant Shell corporation, in an effort to clean decades of pollution on their property. Bullied, intimidated, and ridiculed, the family refused to buckle and took their fight all the way to the finish. This is a gripping, tense, and ultimately uplifting tale of how one family stuck to their guns, righted a wrong, and changed the way oil companies operate forever.
