Martin fills a number of pages with debunking other work, without adding much more to the body of knowledge. It's a refutation of the idea that ancient copper mines were worked in the Lake Superior Basin. Granted there are some wildly speculative books out there, but not enough to justify a whole book agin' the subject.
