Sixteen Tons A Novel by Kevin Corley


HISTORY COMES ALIVE in Kevin Corley's epic novel about the lives of coal miners and their families during the early 20th century. With mine owners employing gun thugs and the National Guard to suppress the new union, miners and their families fight bloody battles to secure a living wage and safer working conditions. As deep as the men descended down into the coal mines, so deep goes the reader into the inspiring stories of the immigrant and American born men and women who fueled the industrial revolution with coal, the black gold.
