I purchased this book for information on the history of coal. Unfortunately, I read a relentless rant from a conservationist's view of the evils of coal use. This publication should be endorsed by enviromentalist groups but not by historians.

world history at its best and worst
Coal has shaped our city growth from 200 BC to 2003 global warming on every continent. Barbara Freese cycles a town in China and experiences the burning lungs from coal. She tells the history of child labor in the mines everywhere. Shocking and backed up by research with an extensive bibliography, her facts are told in such a way that you do not want to stop reading the gruesome story. Hope Pres. Bush and Condi Rice read her history. Our country needs to be a leader in environmental preservation and clean up.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
