A Special Breed is a collection of poems written from the experiences of a former coal miner. The poems tell of the coal face, that only a coal miner could describe.
The stories are sometimes harrowing, but if you close your eyes and use your imagination you may be able to envisage the life of a coal face worker.
You may also get an insight into the friendship and camaraderie of the coal miners world. A world where they had to watch each others backs on the coal face, and wash each others back in the showers.
The world of men who were a special breed, a special breed indeed.
