Publisher Comments:

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.

Table of Contents

Copper metropolis — Habits of drink — Manners and morals — Born miners — Ladies and gentlemen, brothers and sisters — Imagination's spur : station KGIR — Depression blues and New Deal rhythms.
