From the Ground Up: An Autobiography

Front Cover
Viola MacMillan was a mining dynamo, a legend in the testosterone-driven, wheeling-dealing venture that is Canadian mining. In this rags-to-riches autobiography, MacMillan offers a passionate account of her life in the bush, her rise to fame, and the setbacks she endured along the way. To put the story in context, Virginia Heffernan provides a snapshot of the Canadian mining industry during MacMillan’s heyday, including the events that led to her jail sentence and eventual pardon.
