Description
 
This is the story of nine Somerset County, PA, miners who showed unwavering courage & strength, waiting nearly four days for rescue at the Quecreek mine while trapped 244 feet underground. It is also the story of several hundred dedicated & tireless rescue personnel who refused to quit until all of the miners were safely above ground once again. “All nine are alive!” Pennsylvania Gov. Mark Schweiker reassured an exhausted & jubilant crowd just before midnight on Saturday, July 27, 2002. A few hours later, one by one, a community’s prayers were answered. This book recounts the harrowing accounts from the trapped miners & the heroic rescue efforts that united a country in its hope for a successful outcome. Photos.
