Images of Appalachian Coalfields
by Builder Levy
Publisher's Description
Levy's documentation of the Appalachian coal mining community, made during fourteen years of visits to West Virginia, Kentucky, and western Pennsylvania, is compassionate and informative. The narrative accompanying the photographs details the social and economic changes in the area as revealed through the lives of people who endure the poverty and hardship of the mining life. "I found Builder Levy's work among the miners both sincere and sensitive in its understanding of people, their labor, and their surroundings. His approach is honest, direct, and sympathetic."--Paul Strand.
