Synopsis

In the 1890s, Rossland was the most important mining centre in

southeastern British Columbia. In Roaring Days, Jeremy Mouat

examines many different aspects of mining, from work underground to

corporate strategies. He also brings to life the unique individuals who

were a part of this history -- the miners who toiled long hours under

unimaginable working conditions, the citizens of Rossland who built a

bustling town out of the wilderness, and the mine owners and

entrepreneurs who became wealthy beyond all expectations.
