This book focuses on women and their place in communal life and in keeping their male coal-miners going, in Northern England in the first half of the 20th century. Responsible for meals, laundry, money management, and social planning, these women, young or old, shouldered the burden of maintaining a healthy family among the rigors of strikes, closures, accidents, and deaths within mining communities.
