An account of the growth of the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Washington State, the birth of the atomic bomb, and the culture which it spawned. Here we meet a high school football team - 'The Bombers' - whose helmets feature a mushroom cloud; bridge clubs, brownie troops, and PTAs living virtually in the shadow of A-bomb factories; and workers who find building weapons of mass destruction to be 'just another job.'
