By the end of the notorious 1984/85 miners' strike many wanted to forget their painful experiences. Thirty years on people are ready to look back and talk about what happened in England during this defining moment of industrial action. This carefully compiled book presents some of their stories. Beverley Trounce and Charlie Cibor, a librarian whose father was a miner and an ex-miner and activist, have interviewed a number of the people directly affected by the strike. Their research covers many topics and the book considers variously the pickets, the collieries, the matter of simple survival through the extreme and grinding poverty of the time, the effects on the women and children involved, and the wider community, as well as the aftermath, moving on, and what its legacy means to people today.
