This collection of fifteen poems is a moving testimony to the buried truth of the hardship, exploitation, even contempt, suffered by the universal fellowship of miners and their families, and the courage honesty, generosity and respect for others that underpin their own lives.

“The personal service I received was superior. No query or problem was left unanswered or unattended.”

Nicholas King
