Publisher Comments:

At the turn of the century, Colorado's Cripple Creek District captured the national imagination with the extraordinary wealth of its gold mines and the unquestionable strength of the militant Western Federation of Miners. In ALL THAT GLITTERS, Elizabeth Jameson tells the better-than-fiction story of Cripple Creek, the scene in 1894 of one of radical labor's most stunning victories and in 1903-4 of one of its most crushing defeats. 32 photos.

Table of Contents

Not a poor man's camp — Staking the claims — In union there is strength — Sirs and brothers — Imperfect unions — A white man's camp — Class-conscious lines — As if we lived in free America — Look away over Jordan.
