Reviews

"The publication of On Dark and Bloody Ground is a tremendous addition to the literature on the West Virginia Mine Wars and is long overdue. It is a pleasure to read, and it captures the voices of the coalfields in a way that is unlike any of the other accounts."
Lou Martin, Chatham University
"When I read this book, I was blown away. . . . It is so important to keep our history alive and that is what this book does."
From the afterword by Cecil E. Roberts, president, United Mine Workers of America International
