Summary
Recounts the saga of Butte, Montana, including both the highs and lows of the most lucrative hard rock mining town in U.S. history. In this copper mining metropolis known as "the Richest Hill on Earth," "the Gibraltar of Unionism," and "the Pittsburgh of the West", the Industrial Revolution collided with the romance of the frontier, corporate capitalism battled organized labor, and the country's ever-increasing appetite for metals laid waste to land and water. Tells the story through the lives of miners and their families, initially immigrants from Ireland and England, but eventually from nations across Europe
