After completing for the second time a tour of the Lackawanna Mine near Scranton, PA, and visiting the adjacent Pennsylvania Anthracite Heritage Museum where I purchased this book, I find the text to be extremely well written, illuminating, and easy to read. I recommend it highly to anyone interested in the history of anthracite mining or the ethnic diversity of the anthracite region.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
