This book contains loads of lore about the history of the coal mining area of PA, including songs and first person stories. It is not tightly edited but the author no doubt didn't want to leave out a single thing that he had dug up. I am interested in the history of the area where my ancestors lived and worked so am happy to have found it and grateful for all his hard work in pulling all the stories together.
