Ghost Dancers is the final volume in Dave Douglassís mining trilogy Stardust and Coaldust, published to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the end of the miners strike.
 
A first-person, insiders view of, probably, the last generation of miners and their union. David Douglass is a long-standing and well-known member of the National Union of Mineworkers in the Durham and Doncaster coalfields. He was a coalminer for 40-plus years and a branch official of the Union for 25 years, as well as a member of its Yorkshire Executive during its most testing and dynamic period. He remains a full member of the NUM and is still active in the internal affairs of the Union, as well as being one of its more public and well-known representatives and a published author and historian of the coal communities.
