Despite mining's multidimensional role in the history of Utah
since Euro-american settlement, there has never been a book that
surveyed and contextualized its impact. From the Ground Up
fill that gap with a collection of essays by leading Utah
historians and geologists. Essays here address the geology of the
state, the economic history of mining in Utah, and the lore of
mines and miners. Additionally, the book reviews a handul of
particularly significant mineral industries---saline, coal,
uranium, and beryllium---and surveys important hard-rock mining
regions of the state.
