- chrisLv 51 decade agoFavorite Answer
Stealing the Hills takes place in a beautiful village in the
English countryside. The story is narrated by Susan, a
teenage girl whose family lives in the village. Her father
works in the local coal mine, as do most of the men in the
village. However, there is no coal left in the mine, and it
therefore has to close, leaving the workers and their
families unemployed and depressed.
A rich man, Mr Beech, appears in the village. He tells the
trusting villagers that he is going to buy the old coal mine
and provide new jobs for the workers. But Mr Beech is in
fact an unscrupulous businessman. He buys a beautiful
hill next to the village park and starts digging there,
looking for more coal. Soon the village is no longer
beautiful but black with coal dust. The villagers go to work
for him but he pays very badly.
Susan and her friend Julie organize a protest against Mr
Beech - they want to get him out of the village. But the
businessman is utterly immoral and his dirty tricks really
frighten Susan and her family ...
