The coal industry revolutionized early America, driving the economy for years before oil. What's left unheard of is the struggle of mankind and the sacrifices made to launch our nation into power. Exploring the Abandoned Coal Towns of West Virginia takes readers on a guided tour through West Virginia’s coal towns, spotlighting the struggles and sacrifices of early Americans to lead the way into our world today. Many of these coal towns thrived while others plummeted practically to the ground, but traces can still be seen today. We cannot forget about those who built the interior of America, whose homes and businesses now lay abandoned like a wrecked ship at the bottom of the ocean.
