A tender and moving coming-of-age middle grade novel, set against the backdrop of a mining community, features environmental themes that are relevant to today’s political discussions

A Bird on Water Street is a coming of age story about Jack, the son of a miner growing up in a small town that has been environmentally devastated by a century of copper-mining.

When the miners strike, Jack is thrilled that green and growing things at last have a chance to return to the red hills. But when that same strike threatens to close the mine and force people to leave Coppertown for new homes and jobs, Jack finds himself struggling to hold on to everything he loves most.
