Children of the Dark

Children of the Dark by Alan Gallop. I have just finished reading this excellant book and I must say that it is a long time since I have been moved by such a story this book tells.

The book details the life and times of Joey, his family and their neighbours in there struggles to make a living under the yoke of uncaring coal owners.

This is a must read for anyone who is researching or just interested in the lifes of miners such as Joey and his family.
