Mining in Butte - Images of America
By Patty Hooker. Softcover, 128 pages.
The story of Butte is the story of underground mining. In the early part of the 1900s, Butte had more than 100,000 people and 400 mines in operation. Open-pit surface mining has replaced underground operations, and only a handful of the iconic gallus or head frames are standing today. This collection of vintage imagery showcases the people, machinery, processes, and technology in the mines that comprised Butte Hill.
