Book review

Going back over a period of 100 years, Mine in the Sky tells of the events leading up to the discovery and development of the great tungsten ore bodies at Pine Creek, California.

Located outside Bishop, in a remote setting in California's rugged Sierra Nevada mountain range, its development imposed unique challenges to the hardiest of miners. The operation was plagued by bad luck and poor timing in its early years, but through the perseverance of a dynamic group of mining personalities, it was destined to become one of the world's great tungsten mines. Pine Creek tungsten supplied much of the defense needs of the United States during world war II and made a substantial contribution to the country's stockpile of strategic metals.

Mine in the Sky recounts a history shaped by world politics, the ups and downs of metals demand, and economic survival through technological innovations. Using personal recollections, the book portrays the lives of the people who made the place what it was and found a home and sense of community in dramatic Pine Creek Canyon. This account is invaluable for mining historians as well as those interested in the history of the Eastern Sierra and the Owens Valley of California.
