King Coal – Musings Of A Working Man On Work, Family & Nature

ISBN: n/a

Published: 2014

Contained within the covers of this straight forward, unassuming book can be found the strong personal philosophy and gentle insights of a working man from Scotland. A glimpse into the mind and heart of a Fife miner. The bright sunlight of everyday observations combined with deeper reflections arising from a hard working life, underground.

Compiled from the original hand written notes of James Venters, you are taken back in time to a vision of strong family ties and a sense of close community. Things sadly lacking in these ‘modern times’.
