How far would you go to protect the land you love? When treasured landscapes near national parks in Utah were included in a last-minute, contentious oil and gas sale, then college student Tim DeChristopher entered the auction as Bidder 70. Tim bid 1.8 million dollars for 22,000 acres of land with no intention to pay or drill, bringing the auction to an abrupt halt. Bidder 70 tells Tim’s story, including the motivation for his act of civil disobedience, the charges he faced, and the people he inspired.
