Item description for Above the Slate: An Appalachian Love Story by Lou Martin...

When Neva and Grady marry, she dreams of owning their own home, while he dreams of organizing his fellow coal miners to fight for their rights. Above the Slate follows the twists and turns of the couple's life together---their birthing and grieving, their hoping and hiding from the law. Throughout it all, Neva and Grady remain committed to different, often conflicting dreams.

A down to earth account, Above the Slate is told in the plain and earthy voices of a husband and wife who struggle against the harsh realities of Appalachian coal country in the 1930s. Imprisonment and escape, the death of one child, the birth of three, and a tragic mine explosion give the story structure; an honest portrayal of family relationships gives it heart.

Reviews - What do customers think about Above the Slate: An Appalachian Love Story?

Honest, Open, and a Real Look at Life  Jan 24, 2003
I really liked this book. doesn't have..and forget mystery. It is the story of real a real a real situation. If you want a taste of yesteryear, a time when the man had the say and the woman followed blindly, then this is the book for you. I enjoyed the extras, the gardens, the flowers, and the cooking. I am still hungry for biscuits from having read this book. It has a satisfying ending and is a good story. I am glad I bought it and read it.
