The Dry is a children's historical fantasy that combines the awful truths of the mining world in 1895 West Virginia with an adventure story about a boy who goes on a search for his father and discovers a world underground overrun with giant insects. Some insects are good, some are bad, and some are plain ugly. A blend of fiction and non-fiction that is designed to educate in a delightfully entertaining way.
History of the Book:
The main message is keeping promises. Set in 1895 West Virginia coal mine country before child labor laws were enacted.
