Joseph Robinson, SB, 351pp, Tempus (2007)

Joe Robinson's uncle was a Durham miner. Growing up in the gritty North East, only two miles from Durham city, he headed down t'pit when fourteen and retired through ill-health and died in 1982. He survived the depression years and this earthy biography tells his story underground working in the dangerous Durham coalfield. With a foreword by the Rt Hon. Tony Benn MP, Tommy Turnbull's story is told with passion. Mining has always been a dangerous activity and Tommy Turnbull's story is similar to that of almost half a million men who once worked in Britain's coalfields.
