Rocky Mountain Mining Camps


The Urban Frontier


In this absorbing history of a number of Rocky Mountain mining settlements, Smith traces the cycle of the frontier phenomenon – camps pop up, experience uncontrolled booms, and either die with the depletion of their mineral resources or survive as permanent agricultural and mining communities. Written in a lively, easy-to-read style. Rocky Mountain Mining Camps – The Urban Frontier, appeals to both scholars and the general public. With lawlessness and vigilante justice slowly yielding to civilized ways, the colorful histories of many mining camps are recounted, linking yesterday with today.
