I posted several days ago on the legendary International Union of Mine Mill
Smelter Workers. This has led to a number of inquiries about the nature of
this once-great, now gone hardfighting outfit.  Here is a link to my long
and detailed review essay in Labor History of Mike Solski's fine book, Mine
Mill,  Although the book's primary focus is on the Canadian section of Mine
Mill , there is much on the US situation as well.  [Same international
union.]  [These pages might take a moment or two to load but they get there
pretty damn fast.]  Hunterbear

In our Gray Hole, the ghosts often dance in the junipers and sage, on the
game trails, in the tributary canyons with the thick red maples, and on the
high windy ridges -- and they dance from within the very essence of our own
inner being. They do this especially when the bright night moon shines down
on the clean white snow that covers the valley and its surroundings.  Then
it is as bright as day -- but in an always soft and mysterious and
remembering way. [Hunterbear]
