This was the perfect Christmas gift for a mining engineer raised in Colorado. The photos are stunning, and the layout makes this volume totally absorbing. I recommend this book to anyone interested in Colorado's humble beginnings and mining history enthusiasts. The photos are the focus, and this book is light on text. If the reader understands mineral processing and mining, that would be fine. The lay reader may be somewhat lost, but there are outside resources available to answer questions that may arise. Overall, this is a gem, and a treat to own.
