Publisher's Summary

Kevin Canty tells a story based on a real incident that begins with a disastrous fire in an isolated silver-mining town in Idaho in the 1970s. Everyone in town had a friend, lover, brother, or a husband killed in the mine. The Underworld traces the lives of the handful of survivors and their loved ones - a young widow with twin children, a college student trying to make a life for himself in another town, a lifelong hard-rock miner - as they struggle to come to terms with the loss. It's a tough, hardworking, hard-drinking town, a town of prostitutes and priests and bar fights, but nobody is tough enough to get through this undamaged.

This is a powerful and unforgettable tale about small-town lives and the healing power of love in the midst of suffering.

What the Critics Say

"Paul Michael Garcia narrates this fictionalized account of the aftermath of a real-life 1970s underground fire that killed 91 miners. With a sense of detachment, Garcia keeps the emotions close to his chest and the action and observations close to the bone.... It's a very American story, and Garcia's reading is as hard, dark, and honest as the mountains that the townsfolk depend on." (AudioFile)
