This book paints a rich and unique portrait of early Michigan history. It was a great read that I couldn't put down. Krause manages to keep interest while providing a detailed historical account of the development of Michigan's critical copper mining industry. I would highly recommend the book to those looking to learn about a fascinating history of the richest mines ever discovered.
