Greenside was Cumbria's richest and deepest lead mine. For over two centuries it dominated the valleys and moulded the very fabric of Lakeland society. Men lived their lives by the clang of the mine bell. They slept in the bothies high on the fells. They toiled in the muck and the darkness, and occasionally they died in the depths. 
In this, Ian Tyler's second book, men and masters are brought to life in a vivid reconstruction of Lakeland history. There is tragedy, there is humour. There are tales of hardship, valour, and a disaster which tore the heart out of a mining community.
