Product Overview

"The Pennsylvanian Anthracite Coal Industry" is the definitive book on America's most famous and important anthracite coal region. In his comprehensive analysis of the development of the anthracite coal industry from the onset of the American Civil War to the "Great Strike" of 1902, Richard G. Healey synthesizes data about the region's fifty most significant mines to place coal mining in the context of both the U.S. and the Pennsylvania economies. At the same time, he tells of the human side of mining, from details of the lives of immigrant miners to deadly mine disasters.
The importance of the coal industry to America's economic growth in the nineteenth century cannot be overstated, and with this book, Richard G. Healey has deftly and illuminated this essential period of American history.
