Coal may be a dull subject, but this first novel is vivid and boisterous. Kubicki successfully draws a picture of the struggle for existence in a Pennsylvania mining town at the turn of the century. Seen through the eyes of 11-year-old Euan Morgan, Jeddoh is a town where Poles and Welsh distrust each other, and both are in thrall to Markham, the independent mine owner. This is not just about mining and unions, but also about love, passion, growing up, and the various emotions that constitute life at the edge of survival. Each person is real for the reader, from the schoolmarm to the historical Mother Jones. Well written and well plotted, this is highly recommended for most libraries. W. Keith McCoy, South Amboy Lib., N.J.
