Historical Documentary about Mining Industry
15 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Set in one of the most isolated spots in the contiguous United States, Butte, Montana serves as the perfect setting for tales old west intrigue. And while Butte has plenty of those stories to tell, hidden amongst the brothels, and beautiful Victorian mansions that dot Uptown, this film chooses to focus strictly on the mining industry in Butte as told by the surviving members of a once strong brotherhood of laborers. While interesting, the filmmakers only scratch the surface of the incredible history, of a place where even today is difficult to travel in and out of, but was once a thriving metropolis, and the largest city west of the Mississippi.
