Full Body Burden is Kristen Iversen’s story of growing up in a small Colorado town in the shadow of Rocky Flats, a secret nuclear weapons plant. It is also a story about the destructive power of secrets — family secrets and government secrets — and the cost of deception. Today, as development pushes against the borders of the former plant site and the United States moves closer to a renewed nuclear arms race, a clear-eyed assessment of our nuclear legacy is increasingly urgent.
