Before the child labor laws, young boys worked as Pennsylvania coal miners under incredibly harsh conditions. Filled with photographs, the book, with its calm understated prose, is an excellent depiction of nineteenth and twentieth century exploitation of children, a dirty period - literally - of our history.
