From Our Editors
Born out of a turn-of-the-century silver bonanza, the mining
community of Cobalt, Ontario, spurred a worldwide speculative boom.
Based on in-depth interviews with local residents and rich archival
sources, We Lived a Life and Then Some reveals the unique
culture of a hardrock mining town. A culture that lives for the
long-shot winner and the lucky roll of the dice, Cobalt has lost
almost as many times as it's won in the mining crap shoot.
