    Probing behind the "wide-open
        city" moniker Butte has worn so well, Mining Cultures shows
        how the western city evolved from a male-dominated mining enclave to a
        community in which men and women participated on a more equal basis as
        leisure patterns changed and consumer culture grew.
      Mary Murphy's engagingly written
        book is the first serious look at how women worked and spent their leisure
        time in a city dominated by men's work--mining. In bringing Butte to life,
        she draws on church weeklies, high school yearbooks, holiday rituals,
        movie plots, and news of local fashion, in addition to the more customary
        court cases, newspapers, and interviews.
      Her lively chronicle of the
        growth of consumer culture in Butte is richly illustrated. It will interest
        those in western and women's history, leisure and consumerism studies,
        and labor and immigration history, as well as general readers.
      A volume in the series
        Women in American History, edited by Anne Firor Scott, Nancy A. Hewitt,
        and Stephanie Shaw

From the Back Cover:

There are many voices telling many stories in this book. Immigrant miners, housewives, flappers, clubwomen, prostitutes, bootleggers, boxers, and newsboys all have their say... This is a tale full of the ironies and contradictions of life in Butte, of stories that helped people to persevere, flourish, and maintain a remarkable allegiance to a precarious community.

About the Author:

Mary Murphy is an associate professor of history at Montana State University.
