History of Copper/Michigan


#1

My personal library includes many books on copper, primarily from
Michigan’s Upper Peninsula an area the locals call “The Copper
Country”. The towns in this area, also known as the western Keweenaw
Peninsula, range from Calumet, Houghton, White Pine, Ironwood and all
that lay inbetween and around. Check internet listings for one of the
book stores in Houghton, Michigan or Michigan Technological
University. The area stores boast local made copper items, mostly
formed using various hammering techniques.

Just a few of my titles are:
"Primitive Man in Michigan" by W.B. Hinsdale/publ by Avery
"BOOM COPPER" by Angus Murdock/ publ by Drier and Koepel
"Strangers and Sojourners" A History of Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula, by
Arthur W. Thurner/publ Wayne State University Press/Detroit

Two books specifically about the 1913-14 Copper Strike, same strike
featured in a ballad by Arlo Guthrie:

“Rebel on the Range” by Arthur Thurner/publ Book Concern
Printers/Hancock Micigan

“TINSEL AND TEARS” by P. Germain/ publ unknown
