Upon its publication in 1976, The Long Tunnel became an instant classic. It's release in paperback includes a foreword describing the investigation into the deaths of 29 miners at the Upper Big Branch mine in West Virginia in 2010. The investigation shows that, so far, money and greed still enable those most responsible to walk away with millions while widows and children grieve. The Long Tunnel lifts the lid on the Pandora's box of life underground. It does so with the cumulative power of daily life, without flinching. But rather than unleashing despair, it displays the humor and insights of gritty and hopeful survivors. It is required reading for anyone with an interest in the struggle to survive in today's America. "Meade Arble's The Long Tunnel is one of the best books to come from an American publishing company in the last decade. He has done for coal mining what Erich Remarque did for warfare: he has told it like it is. THE LONG TUNNEL is a kind of industrial ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT." Harry M. Caudill "This must be what they call a great read, the very best I've had in months and months. THE LONG TUNNEL is a magic book." D. Keith Mano National Review.
