Coal Camp Kids

Growing Up In A Coal Camp


Come explore another time and place. The coal camps may have been rough and impoverished but to the kids that grew up there they were wonderful and exciting. These tales range from playing church and bird funerals,to how chewing tobacco and spitting into the creek became one of Roy's best tattle-tale adventures ever. Learn about the Goings on between the churchgoers and the sinners. Find out if Margie's pet chicken, Gladys ended up in chicken heaven or on the dinner table. Follow the adventures of Bonnie's unexpected ride on the back of a hog. Find out what the trickle of water coming out from under the Christmas tree really was. You may be surprised that it really did hurt dad more than the kids when he removed his belt to punish the kids. Learn the real meaning behind David's insistence that 'Pocky mokes". Discover who wins when Raymond tangles with Sally the cat. Experience the itch of Larry's mishap in the woods. Find out why Judy isn't wearing any panties. These tales reveal the good and the bad of what life was really like for the Coal Camp Kids.
