Coal Black Heart
The Story of Coal [and the Lives It Ruled]DAISY - 2010
Describes how Nova Scotia (especially Cape Breton) has been fundamentally shaped by the coal industry, with a combination of family, natural, social and labour history. While much of the book is about broken promises from governments and businessmen to the people who sometimes squandered their health or lost their lives in the mines, and who fought in violent labour disputes, DeMont also covers tales of miners - his own descendants among them - that provide glimpses into the joys and hardships of their lives.
