Description


 Capturing for posterity the vanishing world of uranium mining, this candid memoir recounts the author's adventures and misadventures working underground in 1970s New Mexico, the "Uranium Capital of the World." Detailed descriptions of the tools, methods and hazards of uranium mining, along with character sketches and entertaining anecdotes, provide a colorful glimpse of a bygone way of life--drilling, blasting and mucking the sandstone of the Grants mineral belt in the San Juan Basin.
