He started with a Vietnam protest in the late 1960's and moved on to books about industrial and migrant workers, the U.S.-Mexican border, poverty in the Mississippi Delta and Texas death row. His newest work Coal Hollow, completed with his wife Melanie, looks at the death of coal culture in rural West Virginia.
