In his life as a miner, Colin Archbold has seen many changes below ground in the coalmining industry. In his memoirs he describes the mines where he worked; the techniques, the unions, the bosses and the disasters.
He gives an insight into the mining community of Kurri Kurri, Australia where he grew up and the mining communities where he raised his family. He believes we will never again see whole towns like Kurri Kurri, Weston, Abermain, and Cessnock where all the people were involved with local mines. The old days of people watering their gardens and talking about their day at the pit will never come again.
