    Amazing journalism; amazing story

    I read a fair number of books about disasters (manmade and otherwise), but this is by far the best. The author had access to tapes of the survivors made in successive years, plus her own interview with survivors and families. And if the harrowing story of the trapped miners and the rescue isn't enough for you, there is a wonderfully illuminating section on how the Canadian miners were invited to a Georgia resort for a free vacation for publicity purposes. One of the miners, however, was black, and segregation was the law in Georgia at the time. So you get the classic man-versus-nature story of the mine disaster and then the man-versus-man struggle of trying to keep up offensive practices without offending anyone.

    This book is the best book I have ever read and I have read many. It is a must for anyone who believes in the endurance of the human spirit. I usually do not become physically emotional when reading any book, but this one made me cry, laugh, and rejoice with each of the men and their families. Their hopes,human suffering,and determination are beyond description. A MUST READ !!!! Even if you like romance or science fiction,it doesn't matter. You will not be disappointed. WARNING, be prepared to read it in one sitting. You just can't walk away from this one. Enjoy.
