I have a great deal of interest in the business of coal mining, as my grandmother's father and older brothers were lost in the Monogngah W V mining disaster in 1907. I want to understand the world that she lived in and the horrors of the work they did and sadness that must have permeated all of their life. This book helps me to understand the mindset of that time and how my great grandmother must have felt waiting for word after the mine collapse. While I have a special interest in this time in history, the interest to you may be in the authentic voice he gives to coal mining specifically and our American Industrial history In general, in his other, well researched books.
Of course, Mr. Sinclair wrote this book many many years ago and so there is a odd formality to the storytelling. I have read many old books, and I enjoy that style, if you are new to the style, please hang in, you will come to enjoy the difference. I am going to look at his other books now, and expect to learn more about where the roots of our middle class came.

This book is an historical novel of life in the coal mines in the early 1900's before and during the time of developing of unions. The characters have a lot of depth and are recognized as individuals, each different.They are entire families. The development of the story is done with most of the characters being immigrants with their own spoken language and an understanding between them based in non verbal understanding and caring for one another. The main character is a wealthy young man who is embedded in the camp to learn about the industry in disguise an becomes "one of the guys" to study the culture.. He is not interested in displaying his wealth which doesn't mean much to him. He goes to bat for them and helps start a union. It's a great read.

It is a well written story with gritty aspects to it, but I thought it wrapped up a little too neatly at the end . Having the main character being so well connected made it a little too convenient, While he is put in some rather dreary circumstances there is always a very bright light at the end of the tunnel for him. The desperation of the conditions in the coal mines is not his ultimate reality.

At times I felt that it was laborious to read, but that is just his style. He leaves very little detail to be second guessed.
A great subject to write about, and an eye opener regarding some of what our ancestors had to do when they arrived in in a country with a language that they didn't speak and with very limited job prospects. He makes a point of what a great thing our national education system has turned out to be.

This book allowed for me to think about the world as it is. Not much has changed in one hundred years. There is still urban corruption, racism, and workers being exploited to make the rich men richer.

Mr. Sinclair presents a very thorough and detailed account of what it was like to be owned by the coal industry in the early 20th-century. The book was smooth flowing with many well developed characters.

Nobody has been able to tell the story of working people like Upton Sinclair tells their stories.
Upton Sinclair's works are especially relevant today.
