The Mining in the American West series presents notable titles in the field of mining history. Defined broadly, this includes works about mining communities, people, technology, mines, districts, and whatever else might touch upon mining from the arrival of the Spanish through the twentieth century.

All proposals for the Mining in the American West series must deal in a substantial way with the history of mining in the American West, and should follow the press submission guidelines. Submissions will be evaluated by the press acquisitions staff and the series editors, as well as outside experts. This series offers the opportunity for anyone interested in mining history to find a home for his/her work.
