About this Item: Doubleday Canada, Toronto, 1983. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good-. First Edition. 362 pp, 8 1/2" H. B&w photographs. "The devastating story of Cape Breton's miners and the strikes they launched against the companies that owned their homes, their possessions, and their churches. Canadians - and the rest of the world - will be shocked by accounts of police brutality and murder, mass demonstrations, rebellion, scandalous politicking, and most of all, desperate poverty and hunger. The miners had always been paid starvation wages by companies that held total monopolies of such towns as Glace Bay. The first time they launched a strike in 1905, soldiers were brought in and machine guns and barbed wire were set up around the mining communities. Credit was cut off from company stores (the only stores). Miners were evicted from company-owned houses (the only houses) in the middle of winter. The death toll was enormous. Strikes over the next fifteen years simply led to continued harrassment and eviction. At one time, the company was permitted, by government order, to employ hundreds of special police, mounted on horseback and supplied with guns and heavy sticks, to batter miners into submission. James Bryson McLachlan was the hero of the Cape Bretoners when he took up their cause and organized strikers and entered into negotiations with the companies. (This) is also his story - and the story of the beginnings of the labour movement for all of Canada." Small Christmas gift inscription on front free endpaper, a few tiny dents on bottom of text block, very light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket is price-clipped, has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light browning at edges, light rubbing/soiling on rear panel. Seller Inventory # 28152
