A first for Rockpool Children’s Books,
a non-fiction book!
The Coal Mine tells the story of deep coal mining.
The story is told through the dramatic paintings of
North East pitmen painter Derek Slater.
His paintings depict the hard working pitmen in harsh,
difficult conditions deep underground as they toil to fulfill the
unrelenting demands of industry and homes for coal.
The Coal Mine shows not only a way of life, which has
been consigned to history, but also a superb example
of the pitmen painter genre.
