MEDIA REVIEWS
"A remarkable volume is The Story of Coal and Iron in Alabama by Ethel Armes. This handsome work gives a complete history of the development of coal and iron in Alabama. The volume rings with the sentiment of the early pioneers, has quaint photographs of the ruins of old blast furnaces, pictures of the early leaders, letters, bills of lading and illustrations of modern plants."--Sidney W. Ashe, New York Times Saturday Review of Books, Aug. 20, 1910
