Book Description ReInk Books, 2018. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1943 edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper.

"Six years before the Forty~niners headed West for Sutter's Creek and Gold, an earlier horde of fortune seekers beat their way to the Keweenaw Peninsula, northern~most outpost of Upper Michigan. This thumb of land, jutting into Lake Superior, Was once the richest copper district in the World, and its story~never before fully told~makes fascinating reading. Its first great rush~with the attendant mushroom boom towns, saloons, fortunes, gambling, and fabulous characters`marks the beginning of one of the most significant epochs in American history. Equally fascinating and revealing is the story of the growth of the large mining interests and the individuals concerned: Alexander Agassiz, who developed Calumet & Hecla in order to be rich enough to give most of his time to natural history; Ed Hulbert, who vied with shrewd Quincy Adams Shaw for control of that company; Boston bluebloods, and other owners; the miners; the speculators, big and little. Here are tales of how mines were found~and missed; how two attempts to corner the copper market almost succeeded, how miners lived and how they felt about management; and of the great era of paternalism. The book is full of lusty yarns, but it is much more than that: it is a conscientious, authentic, factual account of the copper mines of Keweenaw Peninsula, their operation and operators from the earliest days down to the present war. Incidentally it provides some valuable material on the contrast, industrially, between World Wars I and II. This is lively and sound Americana. ". Seller Inventory # 1121704
