Powerhouse follows Fred through various memories of growing up in a coal camp and surviving near-death experiences while working miles below the earth’s surface. From flooded mines, collapsing tops, to getting lost in the labyrinth of tunnels, Powerhouse takes readers on an eye-opening journey of one coal miner’s life below ground.

In an age where coal mining is viewed as a thing of the past, it is more important than ever to understand how and why this dangerous occupation supported so many American laborers. In warm, personable language, Fred describes the tight-knit comradery that formed the foundation of a coal miner’s life, and the reality of how in a split second, their world could come crashing down.
