Eureka Mill tells the story of Carolina cotton mill workers through poetry. Clemson, S.C., poet Ron Rash follows the migrations of Appalachian mountain farmers to Piedmont mill villages. Following the blood-memory of his parents and grandparents, Rash tells the human stories of cotton mill life: long hours, low pay, loss of self-sufficiency. Yet through this often bleak story, the joys of textile community life show through, as do the complexities of an economy built on the sacrificies of these honorable families. The poetry of Eureka Mill is chilling, masterful and unforgettable.
THIS IS THE SECOND PRINTING OF EUREKA MILL.
