This is the first and only book on the 125-year history of the Montana mine and its Ruby mining camp, now a ghost town, in south-central Arizona. Follow both the detailed mining story and fascinating people stories with 115 remarkable photos plus scores of historical maps, charts, and documents, many of which have never been seen or used by other researchers. The book highlights two notorious double murders of Ruby storekeepers in the 1920s and recalls life in Ruby in the 1930s, when the Montana mine produced more lead and zinc than any other mine in Arizona and the mining camp's population exploded to 1200 people. The book includes recollections of former residents of Ruby through personal interviews and wonderful family photographs. Over 260 pages in a 6"x 9" format. Complete research notes and index. Beautiful colored soft cover.
