This book was incredibly interesting, and to anyone who has ever grown up in a small industrial town, there's definitely a lot to relate to. From the company houses where coal miners used to live, to the notorious Sydney Steel Corporation, to cockfighting, to Celtic music, this book points out the good and the bad parts of Cape Breton's vibrant culture.
