Industrializing the Rockies

Growth, Competition, and Turmoil in the Coalfields of Colorado and Wyoming, 1868-1914

University Press of Colorado

In Industrializing the Rockies, David A. Wolff places the deadly conflicts and strikes as well as the racial tensions and the economics of the coal industry in the context of the Western coal industry from its inception in 1868 to the age of maturity in the early twentieth century. The result is the first book-length study of the emergence of coalfield labor relations and a general overview of the role of coal mining in the American West.
