William Pancoast likes to call his writing working-class literature for the working class. The Galion native recently published his fifth book, "The Road to Matewan." The novel includes history from a turbulent time in West Virginia history. The Battle of Matewan, also known as the Matewan Massacre, involved a May 19, 1920, shootout in Mingo County.
