My husband Joe and I have just written a book set at the time of the Knox Mine Disaster through to the present, entitled Owning Treasure. It is a work of historical fiction but with great detail included about this tragic event. Joe grew up in Pittston, Pennsylvania and has always been interested in what happened on that fateful day. We found this forum and thought some here might be interested in our book. Much of our research was done through the books by the Wolensky family as well as other resources. We hope you'll check out our book on Amazon.com, also available for download to Kindle:

Thanks for the encouragement! If you should get time to read it or know of someone who might enjoy it, it's downloadable for free for a short time on Kindle:
