About the Author:

Eric L. Clements is assistant professor of history at Southeast Missouri State University and editor of the Mining History Journal. His areas of interest include both the mining and maritime history of the American West. He has published articles and given presentations on mine health and safety reform, the Western Federation of Miners, the nature and meanings of ghost towns, and the social and physical consequences of legalized casino gambling in three former mining towns in Colorado

Review:

""In the first in-depth study of mining-camp bust, Eric L. Clements presents with clarity and wit the long down-spiraling tale of two former bonanza camps: Jerome, the 'Billion Dollar Copper Camp, ' and legendary Tombstone, 'the Town Too Tough to Die.' After the Boom in Tombstone and Jerome, Arizona "deserves a spot on the shelf of all who wish to understand the economic and social fabric of the American mining west."
