From a celebrated labor historian, the definitive chronicle of the fight for freedom by West Virginia coal miners, an important chapter in American history

Available from Grove Press in hard and paperback and from Audible.

The story James Green has to tell is among the best and largely forgotten American stories. Its about property rights versus human rights, about hard men and women and about violent conflict. Its a tale about a working-class insurgency thats as piney as an Appalachian ballad.
