I recommend Harry M. Caudill's book to those who believe that strip mining ought to be appraised dis passionately. Caudill's text, naming names, de scribes the causes, the symptoms and the ravages of this particular sickness

I recommend Harry M. For a starter, there are the photographs, gathered from a variety of sources, that supplement Caudill's text by showing us parts of Appalachia where the strippers have left their mark. One could classify them as landscapes, I sup pose. Caudill's text, naming names, de scribes the causes, the symptoms and the ravages of this particular sickness. He is notably qualified to discuss it, as readers who remember his Night Comes to the Cumberlands will attest. Caudill is a lawyer who has defended his neighbors in Appa lachia against the exploiters.

Caudill, a native of the Cumberlands and one-time state legislator, supplies more than indignant laments. Though strip mining is a national scourge (to date . million acres have been laid waste) Caudill focuses on his home state, more indulgent toward the coal companies than neighboring West Virginia and Pennsylvania to show how so-called ""reclamation"" laws, toothless though they are, have been evaded with impunity. Starkly graphic, bitter and eloquent, this should (but probably won't) stand at the very top of the recent mound of conservationist tracts.

Book by Caudill, Harry
This is another book to read by Caudill that explains the hardships of the people and their families that live in the coal mine towns of Eastern Ky. Once you start reading, you will come back to read more and more because a lot you never thought could occur where people live and what they had to contend with. The history is very sad but true.
Great book that explains why Eastern Kentucky has become what it is.
To be honest, just glimpsed at it. Got it mainly because my parents" house and the background iis in one of the pictures. Got it for, like a keepsake.
