A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. The history of mining the West has been explored and developed much less than the mines themselves. In fact, no book has been written that encapsulates the overall history of mining in the American and Canadian West. While there is a fantastic cache of materials on the history of mining, until now there was no one source that united these materials together. Concentrated in this necessary resource are published materials on all aspects of mining in the western United States and Canada; assaying over 25,000 articles, maps, pamphlets, books, literature, and lore. This guide will both stimulate and facilitate new research by revealing not only what has been done, but what has yet to be done, and some of the potential sources that may be used to do it. Topics Include: *Prospecting *Stampedes and rushes *Mines and mining camps *Mining promotion and finance *Labor and technology *Mining laws and disutes *Literature and lore.

The history of mining the West has been explored and developed much less than the mines themselves.

While there is a fantastic cache of materials on the history of mining, until now there was no one source that united these materials together.

Critique:

These two volumes are designed to comprehensively list the over 25,000 books, articles, maps, and other items related to the history of western mining. They succeed admirably...There is no other such bibliography for western mining history and culture. These volumes are thus recommended first for any library with a significant Western Americana component, and second for libraries that serve geologists and others with particular interests in western ore, mineral, and other resources. American Reference Books Annual It is a formidable collection and it is hoped that the major research libraries will acquire the book...for those wishing to explore the principal sources that shed light on this history, this book is a valuable resource. The Canadian Historical Review These two volumes may not contain everything you ever wanted to know about the mining west, but they come close. The breath of information is far greater than any other work of this nature. As a guide to sources and a spur to tackling any number of unanswered questions and open questions-including an all-encompassing history of mining in the American and Canadian West-Lingenfelter's work is unequaled. Technology and Culture A massive bibliography and guide to the history and literature of the American West...Highly recommended. CHOICE
