Summary

Howard Fast’s thrilling story of Benjamin Holt, mineworker and hero of the modern labor movement
Benjamin R. Holt, the tough-as-nails leader of the International Miners Union, has a grand and controversial plan: to unite American coal miners in a major strike. His goal is not to advance any political cause, but simply to grab as much power as he can for the miners, and by any means necessary. Based on the life story of John L. Lewis, who for forty years served as president of the United Mine Workers of America, Power is an unforgettable portrait of one man whose courage changed the lives of countless others. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author’s estate.
