Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
There are many voices telling many stories in this book. Immigrant miners, housewives, flappers, clubwomen, prostitutes, bootleggers, boxers, and newsboys all have their say... This is a tale full of the ironies and contradictions of life in Butte, of stories that helped people to persevere, flourish, and maintain a remarkable allegiance to a precarious community.
