This story blends hard-earned facts and historical data and fills the blanks with a sensitive story of humanity in the face of crisis.. the story is well done and believable, and I appreciate the author's imagination regarding the character's perspectives. I learned alot about Wobblies, unions in early 1900s, the copper barons, and the plight of the working man 'and women' in that era. Did you know Butte Montana had more population than any other city west of the Mississippi at the turn of the century? It makes you look at that big pit mine and the slag heaps and headframes, a bit differently. Be sure to visit the Berkeley Pit when travelling through Butte. I'll never travel through Butte again without thinking of the man who died on the ladder after saving countless lives by spreading the word of the fire and the routes to safety.Was this review helpful?
