NEW RELEASE: Kettle Bottom CD recording

"An hour-long mini-masterpiece."
First broadcast on West Virginia Public Radio, this CD gives listeners a vivid glimpse into coal camp life.  Native West Virginians read selections from Fisher's poetry book. By weaving their voices with history of the mine wars, music, and conversation with the author, the result is a portrait of people who insist on their own dignity as they walk the fine line between life and death.
An excellent companion to the book!  Order now by clicking here.
