Told with great intimacy and compassion, The Bootleg Coal Rebellion uncovers a long-buried history of resistance and resilience among Depression-era miners in Pennsylvania, who sunk their own mines on company grounds and fought police, bankers, coal companies and courts to form a union that would safeguard not just their livelihoods but protect their collective autonomy as citizens and workers for decades. Community and Labour organizer Mitch Troutman brings this explosive and accessible American tale to life through the bootleggers' own words.
