Mining the American West Series
Duane A. Smith, Robert A. Trennert, and Liping Zhu, General Editors
As the old mining saying went, "Silver runs in ledges and gold is where you find it." Or as one prospector grumbled, "Gold is where I ain't." For scholars of mining history, gold is where you are?in the mining history series sponsored by the University Press of Colorado.
The University Press of Colorado is looking for manuscripts in the field of mining history. Defined broadly, this can include manuscripts about mining communities, people, technology, mines, districts, and whatever else might touch upon mining from the arrival of the Spanish through the twentieth century. Nor is the scope of the series limited to mining for precious metals: manuscripts dealing with the extraction of base and fuel are also welcome. However, all manuscripts submitted for the series must deal in a substantial way with the history of mining in the American West. This new series offers the opportunity for anyone interested in mining history to find a home for his/her work. The scope of the series is limited only by the interest of the writers who submit manuscripts.
Submissions should be addressed for the series and directed to:
University Press of Colorado
5589 Arapahoe Ave. # 206C
Boulder, CO 80303
All proposals for the Mining the American West Series should follow the press submission guidelines, and submission will be evaluated by the press acquisitions staff, the series editors, as well as outside experts.
