Alan
Fascinating and comprehensive story of copper mining in the Keweenaw Peninsula, from wilderness to boom to bust, and all the technology and town building in between. Have a new understanding and appreciation of one of my adopted "homes", the Copper Country. Another important work by the area's preeminent local historian.
