Format: Hardcover
I have found this book very enlightening. Not only does the auther combine statistical fact, but she show various sides of the socioeconomic aspects of miners in this time period. A definitive work. This book should be in everyone's library, especially families who worked the mines mentioned. A very indepth analysis replete with fact and figures of an era gone.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Being a native of the western Maryland Georges Creek coal region that is the subject of this book, my opinion is much less than objective, but I think that Katherine Harvey's book could not possibly have been better written.
