Mitchell Miner is a riveting and informative exploration of the life and labor of John Mitchell, one of the most important figures in the history of American labor. Gluck tells the story of Mitchell's life and work as a coal miner in the dangerous and difficult days of the Gilded Age, when men and women labored long hours in dangerous conditions for little pay. Mitchell was a pioneering organizer and leader of the coal miners' union, and his negotiations with the coal companies helped to secure better working conditions and higher wages for his fellow miners. Gluck brings Mitchell to life with lively, descriptive detail, and his story is a testament to the power of collective organizing to improve the lives of working people.; 8vo; 270 pages; TBC.
