    Amazing book of regional history and how the area logging & sawmill industry, shipping industry, iron & steel industries served an entire blossoming nation. Special interest in Oneota area near Duluth, MN. Also unions and political structures, Communism and Socialism, researching my heritage in relation to the aforementioned areas. Branches out laterally like a Sweetbriar web. Amazing references and research, photography, propaganda, class struggles, working and living conditions. Record [...]

    It's a great book, a real treasure. Having read it, I feel I have tapped into the history of labor struggles that shaped this city where I've lived for nearly a decade. It's a rich history, and By the Ore Docks is well researched and crisply written.
