Summary
James, the son of a coal miner, goes with his father for the first time to work in the mines of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, but a sudden calamity puts James and his father in terrible danger.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: "Take care, my son," says James's mother on the day James goes underground to work with his father. "You know the deeps is dangerous." The deeps--coal mines of Cape Brenton--are dangerous, but James is old enough now to do a man's work. This distinctive book offers a dramatic picture of a life few children today can even imagine. Illustrations reminiscent of Thomas Hart Benton let readers experience the darkness of the mines--and the exhilaration of a good day's work.
