About the Cover

The old abandoned Kennecott copper mine, located within the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, is a national historic landmark six miles from the village of McCarthy. The mine opened in 1911 and closed in 1938. The first load of copper ore shipped out by rail was so pure (70%) that it was shoveled into sacks as it came from the mountain.
