Up From The Mines

Up from the Mines is a book of poetry, enhanced by more than fifty photographs by Malcolm J. Wilson. This book celebrates the experience of the Appalachian coal miner. The miners' observations of nature, knowledge of history, ability to deal with adversity, awareness of their connection to a larger world, commitment to religious principle, and wonderment about how they fit into this immense universe are part of this unique book.

Mr. Goode's award-winning poetry is grounded in life experiences. He was born and educated in a coal company town. His father and grandfather were both coal miners.
