My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Bad Ground was second book written by W. Dale Cramer
There is so much in this book and at times I thought this is a mans book. The details of the mining work and the men that worked underground is told with such clarity you feel as if you are there walking those tunnels.
Danger is everywhere....Jeremy finds his uncle Aiden here and wanting to learn from him he joins the workforce. His mother told him as she was dying that his uncle had something to give him and he had something to give his uncle that she could not give either one.
All the men have names (unusual ones) his uncle is Snake because of his skin after he was almost killed in an accident that took the life of Jeremy's Dad. Snake carries a guilt from the accident wondering "if" he had done something different his brother might still be alive today.
When Jeremy went to work there one of the bosses started calling him "Germy" it stuck till the end of story when he showed such courage and declared his name was not Germy but Jeremy.
Reading the last few pages -my heart raced along with Jeremy as he faced the unknown.
This author writes a story you won't soon forget.
