This book commemorates the ending of an industry in this country and with it the closing of a chapter on a way life. Boys will no longer follow their fathers into the dark, deep, damp dungeon of the pit.
David Coleman is an ex-miner and former member of the Mines Rescue Service.
A native of ‘D. H. Lawrence country’ in Nottinghamshire, he shares his mining experiences in an engaging and entertaining way.
He is also a poet with the gift of creating nostalgic word pictures of a lost era.
David Coleman’s book ensures that the heritage of coal mining will not be forgotten.
