Most Americans today view mines as little more than ugly scars on the landscape, places with no connection to an American way of life. This creative new work will force many to rethink that impression: after an introduction to the history of mining in America, the authors present eight visual and historical essays about diverse sites across the nation, each of which reveals mines not simply as physical degradations but as evolving cultural artifacts of the American landscape.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Raymond''s essays are . . . tightly constructed and superbly written. . . . Goin''s images, which are creatively integrated with the text, are as beguiling as they are striking. Much the same can be said for the historical prints interspersed throughout the book.. . . . Anyone searching for the trail that connects our landscapes of mineral production with our landscapes of consumption will likely find the essays and photographs in "Changing Mines in America" absorbing and thought-provoking."--Geoffrey L. Buckley "Geographical Review "
