Summary : It is the year 1918, the zenith period of anthracite coal mining and James Mueller, a fourteen-and-a-half-year-old son of a coal miner, is soon catapulted into the arduous life of a mine worker. James' decision is not based on greed or a directive from his parents, but on his desire to help his family financially, after learning that his older brother is to attend medical school in Philadelphia to become a doctor. Along the turbulent path of his life, James soon discovers that a special bond has formed with one of his seven children, his daughter, Catherine. Catherine faces her own obstacles growing up in the impoverished, idiosyncratic patch town of Shepsberg. The experiences of both James and Catherine are entwined on many levels as they learn the most essential lessons in life from one another. In the Field of Black Diamonds is based on a true story, which chronicles the tale of a coal mining family set in the anthracite coal region of Eastern Pennsylvania. This is the story of their lives, their journeys, their successes, and their struggles in the black land simply known as coal country.

Summary : From the 1860s to the turn of the 20th century, the Mount Diablo Coal Field was the largest coal-producing region in California and once boasted five thriving communities. With the decline of coal mining some residents turned to ranching. Later rich deposits of sand were mined for glass and foundry use. In 1973, the East Bay Regional Park District acquired the land. Today visitors to Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve, located 45 miles east of San Francisco, can explore miles of trails, tour the Hazel-Atlas silica sand mine, and visit historic Rose Hill Cemetery.

Summary : July 1927, in the rugged mining country of Wapakonetka County, Ohio, the miners of Mine Seven call a strike, and it propels them into an unforeseen and bitter conflict. This was a time when men worked twelve-hour days, seven days a week, for seven dollars and fifty cents a day; struggling to keep themselves and their families clothed and fed. But the owner of Harwick Coal Company, and its president, are powerful, iron-willed kings of industry, determined to crush the strike at any cost, and by any means. Without warning, trainloads of strikebreakers are rushed in. The miners are forced to exchange picks and shovels for guns and dynamite. With a single shot the violence begins. Bloody Wapakonetka is born. This exciting and suspenseful story vividly creates the brutal clash between the haves and have-nots; a test of human wills thatsweeps everyone involved to the threshold of destruction. The cast of characters is unforgettable as each side battles for dominance and power.

Summary : 21 years after its publication, a new edition is being published with updated text and new chapters as well as a new Introduction, written by one of the book’s many fans and the biggest name in British football, Sir Alex Ferguson. But this is a book about much, much more than football It is loved not only by Sir Alex but also by Gordon Brown, Alistair Campbell, Ian Rankin and the Rev Kathy Galloway and it was a huge favourite of poet, George Mackay Brown. So why have the trials and tribulations of Cowdenbeath football club – one of the most unsuccessful football clubs in Britain - excited the imagination even of those who have no interest in football and who have never been to Cowdenbeath? Cowdenbeath’s story is set against the rise and decline of the local mining industry and the life after mining. It is very funny, deeply spiritual, moving and also a little bit political. But what makes it so interesting to so many groups is the uplifting story of a real community spirit throughout all of the ups and downs of a town and a football club that is at its social heart and core. It is also the most autobiographical book that Ron Ferguson has written, never taking himself very seriously. The book’s quirkiness appeals across the religious, local, national, and footballing worlds. Long out of print, this is the new and updated 21st-anniversary edition.

Summary : It's 1914 and the coal town of Lithgow is booming. Daniel Ackerman is a serious young man, a miner, a socialist and German; Francine Connolly is the bourgeois, Irish-Catholic, too-good-for-this-place daughter of one of the mine owners. When a tragic accident forces them together, this class-crossed pair fall in love despite themselves. Before the signatures on their marriage certificate are dry, though, war erupts, and a much more terrifying obstacle confronts them. Against his principles but driven by a sense of solidarity, Daniel enlists; Francine, horrified, has no choice but to watch him go. Thrown into a daunting new world of separation and grief, they learn things about each other they might never have known in more certain times - hard lessons about heroism, sacrifice, and the thin line between bravery and stupidity. Told with freshness, verve and wit, Black Diamonds is the tale of a fierce young nation, Australia, and two fierce hearts who dare to discover what courage really means.
