None of us is unaffected by the dreams and failures of our ancestors. In events played out before we are born, our stories have already begun. Legacy of Shadows explores the psychological impact of unresolved emotion passed down through generations. Powerful and poetic, the book evolved from the author's exploration into the hidden impact of family history on her own psychology. Set in motion by the death of a small child in 1904, the story moves from Lincolnshire, England, to Toronto, to New York, to Chicago; yet the true setting remains the interior landscape. Revealing the private perceptions of a mother, daughter and granddaughter in turn, Moats offers readers an intimate perspective from which to consider how we become the people we are.

This is a story about a seventeen-year-old teenager named Sharon Knowles, a senior in high school, who has an eighteen-year-old boyfriend named Andrew Stipes, also a senior in high school. During an uncommon moment of passion between the two, Sharon becomes pregnant, and this pregnancy becomes the defining moment in her young life. Three weeks later Andrew is killed in a snowboarding accident along the Rocky Mountain Continental Divide and Sharon is forced to make important decisions without him. But life goes on, as it must, and she eventually defeats the feelings of guilt, loneliness, and low self-esteem that surround a young person in her predicament. She marries several years later, but the untimely death of her husband during the Colorado Big Thompson flood puts her back in the throes of loneliness again. Then life rebuilding begins slowly, and with the passage of time and the support of friends around her, she learns to live again. This is not a children's story.

The near destruction of the coal industry and the NUM offers a timely vantage point from which to appraise their history. This book presents a collection of specially commissioned essays by leading authorities on miners' history, which challenge the stereotypical imagery of miners' solidarity and loyalty to the Labour Party. This book examines the politics of the Miners' Federation of Great Britain, the unique influences of syndicalism and communism within some of its constituent areas, and the uneven pace of the Labour Party's 'forward march' within the coalfields. Such national developments are then studied within their diverse regional contexts through a series of case studies which permits comparison between the major British coalfields. Finally, the book considers the attempts to overcome these regional diversities with the formation of the National Union of Mineworkers and the nationalisation of the mining industry.
