Joseph Tarone's "Some Stones Shine" tells the tale of his father and uncles as they set off on their own as teenagers to the coal patch village of Raven Run, Pennsylvania, on a cold winter night in the early 1900's. While historical fiction, many of the incidents are true as told to Joseph by his elders. The joys and travails of these young Italians, surrounded by Irish and other ethnicities, are recounted providing a snapshot of life in the anthracite region of Pennsylvania at its peak. "Some Stones Shine" will remind readers of the classic Welsh mining tale "How Green Was My Valley" and will rekindle in locals memories of the era and region.
