This book is about a town whose survival is reliant on a coal mine. The story is told through the perspective of a young girl who loves to lay on the hill and stare at the orange glow the mine puts off. The story is a compilation of all her memories of the coal mine. I use this book to teach memoir writing.

A nice little book. Particularly for anyone who grew up in a steel town. Especially local to the author here. But, it would be a nice book to get for children of people who grew up around steel...when the mills were closed for the kids. A nice way to show them a slice of life before the mills closed down. The art is wonderful.

I know a lot about these places because I went to school in Bethany, WV with a professor who shares the cover of this book with the author.

I liked the story behind this book, though the language wasn't my favorite. It's a nice story of a family who works in the mines of Pittsburgh, but it could have been better.
