A family portrait with coal country as its backdrop 2 marzo 2014
Di Saul Blake - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
In Ghost People: Death in the Mines Sandi Knapp gives the reader a good idea of what life must have been like for eastern Kentucky's coal mining families in the years after WWII. Not only that, she shows how poverty and desperation can tear a family apart. Her setting is vivid and rich with details, and her characters are complex and believable, a combination that successfully draws in readers and makes them care about these people.

Ghost People death in the mines 14 settembre 2013
Di Mindy - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I loved this book! It was such an emotional rollercoaster as you read the experiences of poverty, the coal mining lifestyle, backwoods family values, and death. You really got a feel for what it must've been like back then. The storyline had plenty of twists...there never was a dull moment.
These folks seem real 27 luglio 2013
Di Teamster - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
This book was a pleasure, well written and thought provoking. Sure, it has a few minor typos that didn't get caught in proof reading, but that seems to occur in everyone's work.

Ms Knapp has written a book that I really couldn't put down. The characters seem to be real people. I feel like I've met several of them over the years, both during my excursions into Eastern Kentucky and here in Southern Indiana.

Can't wait to see the next book from this author.
Like a literary time machine 2 luglio 2013
Di Becky Everhart - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I have long been interested in books about how life used to be, particularly those with a distinct but not overpowering Southern flavor. That said, I found this book to be an absolutely delicious taste of days gone by as wellas an excellent way of learning about events and ways of life before my time. While there are many experiences covered that I am not familiar with beyond documentaries on television and the occasional news headline, there are also plenty of things that I can easily relate to. Things like passing on crucial information about the toxicity of poke berries. The book is also rich in conveying details, utilizing all of the senses to breathe more life into the well-chosen words. I can see myself reading this story on a screened porch with a cool pitcher of tea after a day of gardening, or cuddled under a quilt before bed as the crickets chirp outside, and being quite content. I'm sure anyone else would feel just as satisfied.
