Fourteen poetic voices creatively exploring the Pennsylvania mining experience.  Hear them sing of the texture of family life, the confluence of ethnic cultures, the brutality and danger of the mines, and the scars left on the souls and the environment. List to the humor that enables the burdened to survive, and to the myths that protect the dignity of the marginalized. Share transcendent moments as shiny as faceted pieces of anthracite coal, and be renewed by re-experiencing the strength of the human spirit.
Part I: "I come from coal"
Part II: "Two blasts and the windows shake"
Part III:  "Bells like sad angels"
Part IV:  "From the face of the vein"
