Sinopsis:

The Thurber Connection presents observations and interesting events from various sources and covers the spectrum of Thurber life. Particularly interesting in The Thurber Connection is Victor Lucadello's narration - an Italian immigrant miner's son who documents his growing up experiences in Thurber. When Thurber shut down, people moved on to different parts of the United States. And today there are thousands of people scattered all over the states who have ancestral ties to Thurber. This book will certainly give them some idea of what their forbears went through when they first went to work in Thurber, Texas, USA in the early 1900s. The book tries to "Set the Record Straight" on some of the misperceptions and license some writers take when writing of Thurber. This is important to ensure that "How Thurber was" is more significant than trying to imagine what "Thurber should have been like."

About the Author:

The author's family has been a part of the Thurber locale for over 115 years. His grandfather dug Thurber coal for 31 years (1890-1921). His mother, in all her 90 years, never lived farther than two miles from her birth place in Thurber. Today Leo Bielinski still maintains his grandfather's homestead in Mingus (Thurber Junction). With this background it is understandable why Bielinski is eager to preserve his Thurber heritage. In 1994 he was awarded the Texas Historical Commission's Award of Excellence in Preserving History. This award was presented for his work in restoring the 1000 grave Thurber Cemetery and for restoring and moving back to Thurber St. Barbara's Church, the train car which carried miners to work, the Thurber Band Stand and a typical miner's house. Via his web site thurbertexas.com he has helped hundreds of folks from all over the world with questions relating to this area which was once a world-leading coal producer.
