Synopsis

THUNDER ON THE MOUNTAIN -- A Novel of 1936.

In the depths of the Depression, young wellshooter and semipro boxer W. T. "Kid Nitro" Halvorsen starts a strike in the Pennsylvania oilfields after a refinery disaster exposes the Thunder Oil Company's neglect of workers' safety. As the violence escalates, Halvorsen, CIO organizer and secret Communist Doris Gurley Golden, strikebreaker Pearl Deatherage, and Thunder Oil owner Daniel Thunner battle to decide the fate of Hemlock County -- and whether the bloodshed there will ignite a revolution that will shake all America.

Millions of copies of DAVID POYER's thirty-plus books are in print, including THE MED, THE GULF, THE CIRCLE, THE PASSAGE, TOMAHAWK, CHINA SEA, BLACK STORM, THE COMMAND, THE THREAT, KOREA STRAIT, THE WEAPON, THE CRISIS, and THE TOWERS, USA Today best-selling novels of the modern Navy and Marine Corps; and FIRE ON THE WATERS, A COUNTRY OF OUR OWN, and THAT ANVIL OF OUR SOULS, historical fiction set during the Civil War.

Poyer’s least-known body of work may be his Hemlock County series, set in a Faulknerian imaginary county in rural Western Pennsylvania.  The first was THE DEAD OF WINTER (Tor Books); the second, WINTER IN THE HEART (Forge Books).  AS THE WOLF LOVES WINTER was an alternate selection of The Literary Guild and the Doubleday Book Club.  THUNDER ON THE MOUNTAIN, a historical novel set in Depression-era Pennsylvania, was released by Forge Books/St Martin’s Press, and received starred reviews from all three major reviewing agencies. The Hemlock County books have all recently e-republished by Northampton House.  Poyer teaches fiction and memoir in the Creative Writing program at Wilkes University, Wilkes-Barre, PA.
