Riassunto: Memories of a childhood spent in the mountains of West Virginia intertwine with descriptions of daily life in declining Appalachia in this autobiography. Henry Riffe tells his own story, as well as the stories of the people in his family and community, with grace and humor.
After the joys and hardships of his childhood, Henry moves on to focus on his life as a coal miner. The technical details and portrayal of life in the West Virginia coalmines add a new dimension to his story. Seeking a better life for his young wife and their children, Henry chases the American dream to the Washington, D.C., area, where a new career and its challenges await him. But the love of the mountains and his hometow people continually beckon him westward.
