Description

On their first day of Thanksgiving Break, two teenagers from the quiet city of Lafayette, Colorado are spirited back in time to 1927. There, they find the landscape of their hometown dominated by coal mining, where immigrants work long hours in the mines for meager pay, horrific accidents are a fact of life, and freedom of speech is heavily restricted. In spite of this, the immigrant miners lead lives rich in family, community, music, love, and pride in America. It is in this turbulent time that the coal miners of Colorado decide to go on strike, to fight for freedom, dignity, and a better tomorrow for their children. The Coal Strike of 1927 takes the state by storm, all leading to a final, shocking climax at the gates of the Columbine Mine, three days before Thanksgiving. After years of conflict, will the voice of the coal miner be heard at last? With November in America, author Nicholas Bernhard brings the long-forgotten story of Colorado's coal fields to life. We remember the cowboys and Indians, and the prospector panning for gold, but the coal miner is another figure who shaped the American Frontier. It is a story more relevant now than ever, about immigrants, civil rights, patriotism, and what it means to be American. Now featuring illustrated maps by Mister V.
