Book Description Fredericton, NB: Gwen Martin / Canadian Institue of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum, 2003, 1st Edition, First Printing, Fredericton, New Brunswick / Halifax, Nova Scotia, 2003. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine (see description). Uncredited Cover Art (illustrator). First Edition. ------------softcover, about 6.75 x 9.5 inches, a Near Fine copy but the book is a bit wavy, an unread copy so the publisher's binding might be too tight and thus the waviness, signed by Martin, 328 pages, b&w photos, ---"Whenever you read this book, whether by day or by night, miners are at work in New Brunswick. Their underground world is magical and terrifying. Caverns traced by fragile points of light recede into utter blackness, and the stone walls expose swirls of rock frozen in three dimensions. Overhead are vaulted ceilings, silent and beautiful as a Gothic cathedral. The heritage of New Brunswick mining reaches back over three action-packed centuries. Gypsum smugglers sailed down the Bay of Fundy by midnight. Mine developers battled each other using fists in the boardroom and pistols in the field. Many prospectors died without making a dime, while others lost their rightful holdings at gunpoint. And a lucky or skillful few hit the jackpot. The romantic, lively and ultimately triumphant tale of mining in New Brunswick is revealed here for the first time, richly illustrated with more than 140 historical photographs gathered from archives and attics across the province"---, ---contents include: Prologue; Chapter 1: Of Pinnaces and Plaster Wars; Chapter 2: Travels with Abraham; Chapter 3: Foundries of Peace and Wars; Chapter 4: The Gentlemanly Geologist; Chapter 5: Black Diamond of the North; Chapter 6: Oil Shales to Snake Oil; Chapter 7: Granite Beetles and the Gypsum Kings; Chapter 8: Gibersonís Revenge; Chapter 9: Colonel Markham and the Steelmakers; Chapter 10: Mining on Your Knees; Chapter 11: Let There be Light, Said Mr. Lodge; Chapter 12: Connie and the Limestone Cowboy; Chapter 13: Dr. Wrightís Wonderful Adventures; Chapter 14: The Prospecting Brothers-in-Law; Chapter 15: Gesnerís Dream Comes True; Epilogue; Notes; Bibliography; Index , any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo.
