Louis Tikas was a union organizer killed in the battle between striking coal miners and state militia in Ludlow, Colorado, in 1914. In Buried Unsung he stands for a whole generation of immigrant workers who, in the years before World War I, found themselves caught between the realities of industrial America and their aspirations for a better life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Papanikolas brings to Buried Unsung a gift for moving prose and an intimate understanding of those Greek cultural values that affected the Ludlow strikers. . . . At every step, the author merges the written record with oral material and his personal experiences to give unbelievable power to the tale."-American Historical Review * American Historical Review *
"[A] stunning book, one of the most exciting I have read in a decade. . . . The mystery and drama of [Papanikola's] journey to resurrect Tikas and discover his own soul still haunt me weeks after I finished reading the book."-Harry Mark Petrakis, Chicago Tribune * Chicago Tribune *
