May 1, 1900 turned into a day of horror at Scofield, Utah,
where a mine explosion killed two hundred men. In the traumatic
days that followed, the surviving miners began to understand that
they, too, might be called to make this ultimate sacrifice for mine
owners. The time for unionization in Utah was at hand.
A sensitive and in-depth portrayal of the efforts to unionize
Utah's coal miners, The Next Time We Strike explores the ethnic
tensions and nativistic sentiments that hampered unionization
efforts even in the face of mine explosions and economic
exploitation. Powell utilizes oral interviews, coal company
reports, newspapers, letters, and union records to tell the story
from the miners' perspective.
