Description

Like many children throughout Canada's history, Savino had to quit school when he was twelve to work
and help his family. In Out of the Deeps, Savino spends his first day at the mine working alongside his
father and Nelson, his father's pit pony. When Savino's headlamp goes out deep in the coal mine, Nelson
leads Savino out of the danger.
Reviews

Carter's story, based on an actual incident, earnestly depicts the challenges of being a miner; Debon's
paintings effectively illustrate the cold, dark mines and Savino's fears.
