Published by Texas A&M University Press. 1992. By Marilyn D. Rhinehart.

The coal mine represented much more than a way of making a living to the miners of Thurber, Texas, in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries–it represented a way of life. Coal mining dominated Thurber’s work life, and miners dominated its social life. The large immigrant population that filled the mines in Thurber represented more than a dozen nations, which lent a certain uniqueness to this Texas town.
