Day The Whistle Blew
- Our Price:
In tiny Stansbury, Wyoming, a 1940s coal town, the mine was the focus of the community. In many ways, Union Pacific Coal had created a model town. But demand for coal waned and anxieties mounted. Then one day, unexpectedly, the whistle blew and the author's young life was turned upside down. In this memoir, Marilyn Wood writes honestly and compellingly of mines and miners, company towns, coal camp kids, and miners' wives, providing a searing story of survival and acceptance.
