Reseña del editor
Song Hawkins is a beautiful, tough, but lonely New York City businesswoman who thinks she's met the man of her dreams in Cable Jordan, the superintendent of a West Virginia coal mine. But soon after they impulsively marry, Song realizes they're in big trouble. She can't imagine life outside of New York, and Cable has no intention of leaving his beloved town of Highcoal. Song's visit to the little mining community only makes things worse. It looks like the marriage is over. But in a shocking turn of events, Song realizes it's up to her to put on the red helmet of the new coal miner and descend into the deep darkness. There she faces her greatest challenge with choices and courage that will forever impact the life of Cable and the entire town.

Some of his other books like Rocket Boys/October Sky, Torpedo Junction, The Coalwood series, and the Light House keepers son Josh series were a little better than Red Helmet.
I usually like books with a little more action and adventure and am not partial to reading about rich Alpha women like Song the main character in Red Helmet trying to have their own way. I guess I'm old fashioned and this turns me off. However I like Homer Hickman's books so I took a chance and bought Red Helmet. Glad I did!
The 340 book Red Helmet reads very well with no boring parts. Its very entertaining plus the reader learns a little about coal mining in West Virginia. I read this page burner in a little over one day.
The book is manly about a good looking, slim figured, rich, ivy league college graduate, partial Oriental heritage women who has a super job working for her billionaire widower father. She is a scout for taking over companies and making them more efficient. She is a rich, super domineering Alpha women in a men's world.
She meets her future husband Cabel, a college graduate, coal mine superintendent in charge of a coal mine in a small town in West Virginia. Both fall in love but selfishly believe their jobs are too important to leave or modify. There is fighting back and forth and Song seeks an annulment of their marriage.
Later her father buys the company Cabel works for and Song becomes a "Red Helmet...trainee novice coal miner" to gain access to the mine and find out why the highest grade of coal used in steel production is not meeting production quotas. She becomes a hard working coal miner even though she is rich and her father owns the mine? Also there is a double murder mini sub plot in the book the reader can let his/her mind work on by the clues Homer gives.
A good book about coal mining, small rural town persons helping one another, two peoples love overcoming vastly different internal makeups. I was surprised I liked the book as much as I did. Just goes to show, don't have preconceived notions of a book and sometimes it pays to give a book a reading chance. 4 1/3 stars...a very good book.
