Today another important book in the ongoing fight for the people of Appalachia hits bookstores. Reckoning at Eagle Creek, Jeff Bigger’s latest release takes us on a journey into the secret history of coal mining in the American heartland. Set in the ruins of his family’s strip-mined homestead in the Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois, Biggers delivers a deeply personal portrait of the largely overlooked human and environmental costs of our nation’s dirty energy policy over the past two centuries.
