Coal Cracker's Son Gene Gomolka Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Coal Cracker's Son is a novel that focuses upon young Joey Gobol and his Polish family when they lived in Nanticoke, a small coal-mining town in northeast Pennsylvania during the Great Depression.
Although certain scenarios are fictitious and/or embellished, the story documents Joey's triumphs over adversities at home and as a sailor on a destroyer escort in pursuit of
German submarines in World War II.
The author cites the futility and intrinsic dangers synonymous with the coal mining industry. His narration also captures the lifestyle, spirit and resiliency of Polish immigrants and their families.
