Robertson files the heritage of Toluca, Illinois; Cokedale, Colorado; and Picher, Oklahoma, from the mineral discovery part via mine closure, telling for the 1st time how those century-old mining cities have survived and the way experience of position has performed an important role.
Acknowledging the hardships that mining's social, environmental, and financial legacies have created for present citizens, Robertson argues that the industry's affects even have contributed to the production of robust, cohesive groups during which citizens have regularly pointed out with the critical panorama and hard, yet lucrative approach of life.
Robertson contends that the cruel, unpretentious visual appeal of mining landscapes mirrors traits that citizens worth in themselves, confirming powerful feel of position in mining areas, as in other places, isn't unavoidably wedded to an enticing aesthetic or perhaps to a thriving economy.
Mining historians, geographers, and different scholars of position within the American panorama will locate interesting fabric in Hard because the Rock Itself.
