Wallace, Ian


"Ian Wallace's dignified, subtle, yet precise text invites reflection and portrays with wrenching accuracy the bravery and hardship of children forced to give up their childhoods to work in mines, fields, and factories....Illustrations of the steel cage, lowered by cables down a dark shaft, pit ponies snorting and stomping underground, rats emerging from the shifting layers of rock reinforce a reader's sense of the horror of the mines. Yet Wallace balances the mine's darkness with moments of light: the men's humor and solidarity, the wild daisies James's mother sends in his lunch pail."Wallace, Ian is the author of 'Boy of the Deeps', published 0011 under ISBN 9780888996602 and ISBN 0888996608.
