Papa, Carrie
This book documents the history of two celebrated mines in Sussex County, New Jersey, through the eyes of those who lived it. The two mines, consolidated in 1897 under the New Jersey Zinc Company, were recognised world-wide for their diverse and magnificent mineral deposits and are acknowledged as the birthplace of the US zinc industry. At its peak of operations in Sussex County in the first half of the 20th century, the Zinc Company employed over 2000 hourly workers. The Company developed the towns of Franklin and Ogdensburg for the miners, and one of them, Franklin, became known as the 'model mining town of America'. The book is divided into three parts: The Mines and the Miners; The Model Mining Town of America; and The Legacy and the Future. In the first two parts, the narratives explore the positive and negative aspects of life in the mines and in the company towns. In these sections, the author compares the lives of Zinc Company miners to those of other hard-rock miners in the US. The third part looks at the continuing educational impact of the mines, including the influence on the development of local museums and on the Smithsonian Institution's mine exhibit that opened in 1997.377pp.

Allum, Edward L.
This is an exploration of gold panning adventures in the 'Mother Lode' ( the 'Gold Country') in California. With humour, faith, optimism, and spirit, "The Fiddletown Journal" chronicles the daily struggles endured by miners of 1849 and it parodies the miners today. It is an inspiring story of five men who joined forces to search for gold. The book touches on the history of California's Gold Rush and many small mining towns. It is a useful travel guide for anyone who wants to visit the Mother Lode towns, restaurants, shops, and casinos. 79pp.
