About this title


Situated near the Mexican border in southeastern Arizona, the city of Bisbee gained prominence as a mining center around the turn of the century and by 1981 had produced almost eight billion pounds of copper. This large-format, illustrated volume focuses on the boom years of 1880 to 1920 within the broader context of western mining history and shows how, despite its isolation, Bisbee was influenced by regional, national, and even international forces.


"A remarkable book for the rich historical photography included, but also for the multi-disciplinary review of a major mining community."—Tombstone Epitaph
