...From the moment I spotted him I stood at the porch railing rigid as a statue, breathing though my nose so the vapor of my breath in the cool night air wouldn't give me away. Breathing through the nose was one of the things I remembered from my Army days playing a deadly game of hide-and-seek with the German infantry. Who was he? And what was he up to? Mike Breslin's town of Creedonton is about as tough as they come. Set in the 1950's and 1970's, this tale of life in a Pennsylvania coal-mining town, during its rapid decline following World War II, captures the essence of the region, Black Lung and all. Robbing the Pillars is a tale of rich and poor, and the incredible power wealth can wield in a small town. It is a tale of revenge and of injustice, following the Job-like odyssey of a coal miner's son, Jack Dugan, as he attempts to overcome every misfortune in his path. Will old man Creedon continue to get his way? Or, will Jack Dugan finally avenge his father and the decades of greed? Robbing the Pillars is Coal Region fiction at its finest. This volume is 246 pages. Format - softcover - perfect binding. 5.5 x 8.5
