Sinopsis: "Blocton" is a beautiful, 8 1/2" x 11" cloth bound book with 240 photographs, most previously unpublished. The saga begins with two entrepreneurs, Truman Aldrich and Cornelius Cadle, who created the Cahaba Coal Mining Company and pushed a railroad eight miles into the wilderness of Bibb County, Alabama to tap thick veins of coal deep underground. There, they built the town called Blocton. Beside the company town rose West Blocton. The social fabric of the two communities was extraordinary containing a tapestry of nationalities from Italians to Russian Jews, Slavs, and Welsh.
Biografía del autor: A West Blocton resident for his first eighteen years, Charles E. Adams was the son of a miner maimed in a Blocton mine explosion and black listed by the company for union activities. Adams served as Conference Director in Continuing Education at the University of Alabama for twenty-eight years. He resides in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
