Dave Douglass reads from his book, Ghost Dancers, at the Radical Independent Bookfair in Glasgow (May 2010). Ghost Dancers is the final volume in Dave Douglass’s mining trilogy Stardust and Coaldust, published to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the end of the miners strike. A first-person, insiders view of, probably, the last generation of miners and their union. David Douglass is a long-standing and well-known member of the National Union of Mineworkers in the Durham and Doncaster coalfields. He was a coalminer for 40-plus years and a branch official of the Union for 25 years, as well as a member of its Yorkshire Executive during its most testing and dynamic period. He remains a full member of the NUM and is still active in the internal affairs of the Union, as well as being one of its more public and well-known representatives and a published author and historian of the coal communities.Vol. 1: Geordies Wa Mental; Vol. 2: The Wheel’s Still in Spin; Vol. 3: Ghost Dancers (ChristieBooks)
