Interviewer's description-
"This is a topical tape dealing with women in underground mining as seen through the eyes of one female coal miner. Deborah Baker has been working underground full-time for almost nine years in Letcher County, Kentucky. In this interview she talked about reasons for going underground, attitudes of male co-workers and family, union verses non-union mines, and her plans for the future. She loves working underground, but will eventually quit for health reasons (she has asthma) and plans to become a registered nurse."
