UNDERGROUND RICHES

A social studies supplement on mining with enough vitality to sustain interest and leave appetite for further investigation, this tight compendium carries the reader down into the shafts of a coal mine and on location for a first hand look at open-pit iron ore strip mining. A brief prospectus covers the major gold rushes and dredging operations. Too brief to be considered a self -sufficient text, it is nonetheless a fine book to dovetail with more comprehensive volumes. Insights into the dangers still facing miners and the incredible hazards of miners of the past are well done.
