Coal Miner's Son
Robert Thompson Robinson Jr. grew up in a coal mining town. His father mined tungsten and coal, and was working in the Columbine Mine at the time of the massacre in 1927. This book is edited from video interviews Robert Thompson Robinson gave to his son in 1993. The editor did not polish his words, beyond editing out the inevitable repetitions that occur in speech. Here are stories of the broken cherry tree and the cigarette in the chicken house, of the Columbine Mine Massacre and the murder in the street in front of the bar, of the Highlander Boys and the big bands. This book gives a first-hand look at life in a small coal-mining town in the 1920s.
