Thunder on the Mountain

<iframe src=";
Thunder on the Mountain by David Poyer is an incredible story that seems entirely true. It focuses on oil drilling in Pennsylvania during a time when the labor union movement was still in its infancy, and violence was prevalently used to break strikes or break striker’s spirits. Poyer masterfully captures a fully realized world of bosses, workers, illegal boxing matches, riots, sabotage, poverty, and corruption. Characters tear themselves from the page, demanding to be heard, and I couldn’t help but feel every bit of anguish and betrayal they endured.
