The title of this obscure book is a bit of a misnomer, as it is a wonderful history of the towns, people and companies in the (Old) Missouri Lead Belt.

The scope of the project grew to include the history of the mines, companies and towns of the region. Very well researched with lots of interesting facts and photos. A worthwhile read and addition to the library of any mining history buff. 400 pages, with numerous B&W photographs. View more info
