    **Don't care what the Goodreads lists say, this is an absolutely amazing historical fiction novel by one of the most talented authors of our generation**Some books are so good it’s hard to write a review to do them justice, this is one of those books.

    ”Charlie Miller took jobs on the surface and below it, and everywhere he went, the mine operators played the same games. Docking wages when they pleased for whatever reason occurred to them. Firing anyone who squawked. Promising a price for ore, then lowering the bottoms of the cars so they wer...
