Summary: "In the 1940s, Muriel Sibell Wolle traveled to Rosita, and dozens of other old mining areas. She interviewed the oldest residents she could find. She asked them to recall details of the earliest days of the area and she recorded their stories in this book.

"In this book, I was delighted to find historical details about the area I have researched, that I have not found anywhere else. This is a large book, and every locale included in it has first- hand reports of historical information. This book was a huge undertaking and accomplishment for Muriel Sibell Wolle."
