 >> The Mine Wars

“The desire for dignity runs deep.”

Denise Giardina, Writer “For many West Virginians we have a strong attachment to place because it’s not an easy place to live. At the same time, we relate to one another I think through the struggle of being here. Growing up in a coal camp you felt a sense of community. Your neighbors looked after one another. Everybody knew everybody else’s business. Nobody looked down on anybody else and you’re all in it together.”
