Read about the gold, silver, and molybdenum mines of Leadville, Colorado with this engaging book. Written by a former Climax Molybdenum Co. hardrock miner, it tells the story of thundering rock drills and dynamite fumes, of how metals were torn from mountains in a grim, determined, and too often tragic effort that ranks among the greatest of all frontier achievements. Includes lots of photos. This 6"x9" paperback has 165 pages filled with the interesting history of the mines and the men who worked them. See table of contents at the bottom of this page. Stephen M. Voynick, author.
