Overshadowed by the steel industry, the smelting industry of Pueblo had passed in quiet anonymity until Ms. Fry's research brought it to light. This book provides an account of Pueblo's first major industry that lasted some 40 years. The smelting of ores into gold, silver, lead, and zinc predated the beginning of steel making in this town. Included are descriptions of the owners of each smelter, the workers who toiled in them 12 hours a day, labor disputes, and economic conditions that affected the smelters. 2000, Pueblo County Historical Society. Softbound, 8½ x 5½, 164 pages ISBN 0-915617-19-6.
