Coal Agent

“I used to be a coal agent for a land leasing company. My first day of the job, the timber agent and I drove out to a mine where he’d heard some of the miners were stealing coal. We drove around a ridge and parked, then got out of the truck and looked down at the mine face. All the workers stopped and looked up at us, and every one of them had a sidearm on.”

We hope you have enjoyed the Humans of Kentucky Libraries first series featuring the staff and patrons of the Middlesboro Bell County Public Library.
