Leadville, a Miner's Epic

Front Cover
Montain Press Publishing Company, 1984 - Fiction - 165 pages
The Leadville story is a first-rate frontier epic, with romance and excitement enough for ten cities. The real story of Leadville is beyond the portals -- it is of the men who worked the mines, of thundering rock drills and dynamite fumes, of metals torn from mountains in a grim, determined, and all too often tragic effort.
