Description
 
Barbara Freese (au). Since ancient Rome & China, coal has transformed societies, launched empires, & expanded frontiers. Yet the mineral that built our global economy has also caused death, disease, & environmental destruction. This historical journey begins 100s of millions of years ago & spans the globe. Illustrates the profound & often surprising role coal has played in our lives -- pulling nations together while tearing families apart, inspiring great technological leaps even as it inflicts poverty & illness. Part social, environmental, & political history, the saga of coal is a  revealing & under-appreciated piece of human history. This is a captivating narrative about an ordinary substance that has done extraordinary things. Illustrations.
