A Miner’s Story
“Shaun pulls no punches and gives no quarter to those responsible for what took place on May 9th. This is a book that Canadians will want to read.

Shaun’s book gives the screaming truth of the incompetency and lack of regard for human life by company officials and politicians.” - Mike Piche, United Steelworkers
