View all copies of this ISBN edition:

John F. Day's stark description of life in the coalfields of Eastern Kentucky in the 1930s is a classic of Appalachian literature, "an eloquent preface," as Thomas D. Clark has written, to what became "a broader state and national concern about Appalachia." Published on the eve of the Second World War, Bloody Ground was greeted at first with acclaim-and, in some quarters, indignation-but then was almost forgotten as the nation's attention focused on the war. In the forty years that have passed since the writing of Bloody Ground, dramatic changes have swept over Appalachia, but the dilemma that John Day described has not been resolved.
