I thought the illustrations were goregous and the story itself was very lyrical, but I didn't think that this story necessarily matched the author's note at the end of the book. I didn't feel that this story quite captured the danger of working in the mines and I don't think it was very clear that it was set in 1950. Overall, I enjoyed the illustrations and the story, but I found the nuances of it, hard to place.
