As an alternate history, this story of a West Virginia coal-mining town transported back to 1632 and halfway across the world to the middle of Germany makes for a good read. Like Harry Turtledove’s Guns of the South for alternate history or S.M. Stirling’s Dies the Fire trilogy, how culture changes and how technologies impact cultures is what interests me and this book delivers some interesting ideas in that regard along with some memorable action scenes.
