John Martin discusses his coal mining days, beginning in 1957 in the Northwestern Improvement Company (NWI) No. 9 Mine, where he worked as a rope rider---the best paying position with the highest risk. Martin worked in both the No. 9 and No. 10 Mines and discusses day-to-day operations as well as the closing of the No. 9 Mine in 1963.
The cover image shows rope riders who worked in the NWI Company mines.
