What's it take to save a mountain? For the past seven years, the Southern Appalachian Mountain Stewards have worked locally, regionally and nationally to stop the destruction of Ison Rock Ridge in Wise County, VA. After a boulder crushed a three year old boy in his sleep outside the town of Appalachia, VA, community members came together to draw a line in the sand, and to say not one more child killed, not one more mountain destroyed, not one more stream poisoned at the hands of King Coal.

In that time SAMS has developed into a lean, mean, mountain community defending machine working with allies across Appalachia and the nation to put an end to Mountaintop Removal strip mining and to help in the building of a just and sustainable economy in the hills and hollers of Southwest Virginia. Hear their stories and get involved!
