A solo work of one of the Northwest Underground Explorations members, this book chronicals the mining town from its inception to its ultimate demise. You will live some of the triumphs and the heartaches of the people as they struggle to wrest the gold and silver from the surrounding mountains. The railroad and the town of Everett, Washington, all play a part in this fascinating tale of hope, dispair, struggle, and failure. In many ways Monte Cristo was a typical mining town of the era, and in some ways not. The massive winter snows and storms wreaked havoc on the enterprise again and again while the miners fought the odds on the steep mountain slopes. Published By the Mountaineers, Seattle, Washington, 1979.
