Synopsis

Holes in the Hills by Joseph Bogo

How might we react if the spirit of a coal miner killed in a tragic labor incident in 1922 were to confront us? In fact, Joe Bailey is confronted by such a spirit. And, what if you or I were that miner, unable to find peace after all this time? Then, both cosmic and human forces, in fine alignment with Joe as their trip-wire, could be our only hope for closure and for peace. Nick Shebellko was cut down in the prime of his life during the vividly described battle at the Cliftonville mine. But eight decades later Joe, an outdoorsman and real estate agent, meets and befriends Nick's spirit. He and teacher friend Jessie Randall fight to bring peace to Nick's spirit, and to eight other deceased miners, while restoring their own tattered reputations. In the process they not only learn about, but experience 1920's coal mining camp life, its heartaches and its customs. Set in the locale of the world-famous Meadowcroft archaeological dig, this story is both timely and timeless.
