The life, poems and stories of an East Durham Miner
This is a moving and passionate account of one man’s extraordinary battle against adversity to raise a family in an East Durham pit village.
Gordon MacPherson's poetry and writing sums up the arduous working conditions that miners struggle under and his own personal battle with emphysema in later life.
Gordon was an ordinary miner who did great things. This book glows with love and human decency against all the odds.
It shows us the power of community and serves as an example for the future of this area of North East England and beyond.
