This book is beautifully written. The two rivers of earth are the garden soil and the coal seams. The lad who tells the tale is endearing in every way. He is full of quirks, afraid of birth and blood and yet brave when it comes to some dire exigency. He loves his grandma's stories and his crazy uncle's antics. Grandma turns out to be more complex than any of the characters. There is a dynamic tension between the father's yen to go down in the mines and the mother's love of the land.
