After rescuing George, a miner whose leg is caught in an area under construction, the Planeteers are horrified to see how strip-mining is used for finding minerals, proving disastrous to the environment and dangerous for people. They investigate the mine and find that while Hoggish Greedly is in charge, he is actually working under the mine's owner, Sky Runner, a Native American musician Gi and Linka like who is supposed to be an environmentalist. They go to meet him and learn that strip-mining wasn't his idea, and he goes to confront Greedly. He is kidnapped along with George, whom Greedly knew saw the Planeteers, and they are sent in a cart down the shaft where they will most likely be hurt and unable to get out again to stop him. The Planeteers must help, despite the threat to themselves and their powers the explosives pose. Written by
