"The Great Lakes are unique in the geography of the earth, and they have a singularly dramatic story. For three hundred years the sounds of travel have echoed along their shores, from the voyageurs' songs and the schooners' signal cannon to the deep-voiced steamers of today. From seas of legend and wilderness waterways they have become one of the great trade routes of the world. 'The Long Ship Passing' tells that story."--Jacket

Vein of iron; the Pickands, Mather story by Walter Havighurst( Book )

5 editions published in 1958 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vein of Iron tells a kaleidoscopic story. It ranges form docks and blast furnaces on the Lower Lakes to iron mining on all six of the Lake Superior ranges. It spans the mule-power and manpower mines of the early years and the present concentrating of taconite pellets from Minnesota's iron-bearing rock. It shows seventy-five years of change in underground and open-pit mining, in Great Lakes freighters, and in the operation of loading docks and blast furnaces. It describes historic storms on the Great Lakes, the lusty life of the old range towns, the planting of new communities in the northern wilderness. It pictures explorers, miners, geologists, engineers, organizers, and financiers - all men who found in the earth and in themselves a vein of iron
