Review: In Coal Country

User Review  - Paul Hankins - Goodreads

The prose of this book would make it a nice addition to the secondary classroom and the writer's workshop. Reads like a memoir in celebration of the hard work of fathers and mothers and growing up in coal country. Ohio teachers may really like this one for their younger readers! Read full review
