There are issues of the Union, a mine strike, an explosion within the mine, and growing to be tensions among Gerritt and others. The benches within the open pit, started early within the century, have been outfitted too steeply and a part of the mine finally collapses. the arrival failure, a thunderous waterfall of rock, mirrors Gerritt’s descent into self promoting and dependence on unreliable issues. sadness powers his wish to continue the mine operating after the cave in. He destroys himself riding a dozer out onto the slide to mend it.
