Description

The scion of a coal-mining empire sides against his family in the bloody fight to unionize Colorado's mines in this gripping sequel to King Coal

The son of a prominent coal magnate, Hal Warner is horrified by the dangerous working conditions, long hours, and starvation wages endured by the men who toil in his family's mines. He tries to rouse other members of his privileged class to a similar state of indignation, but soon faces a much more severe test of his progressivism. When a labor group organizes a massive strike and the mining companies respond with punishing brutality, Hal's commitment to the cause of reform becomes a matter of life and death.

The Coal War is Upton Sinclair's searing follow-up to King Coal. Based on events surrounding the Ludlow Massacre of 1914, it dramatizes one of the most significant conflicts between labor and capital in American history and offers an unflinching look at the shocking realities of a miner's life in the early twentieth century. Published posthumously, this powerful and tragic novel is one of Sinclair's finest.
This ebook has been authorized by the estate of Upton Sinclair.
