I found this movie about Independent Coal Miners when googling info on Bootleg Mining. This is a very well made documentary made about small company coal mines in Pennsylvania.

Everyone heating with coal needs to watch this.

Take the time to spend watching and know what heartaches it takes just to make your house warm.

Wow I can't believe the dust inhalation didn't kill them within the first year. :shock:

A very somber movie. I hope I am helping them by burning coal.
