Description

This is the most comprehensive study of the Bagdad Chase Mine and its Ludlow & Southern Railway, drawing on many unpublished primary and secondary sources.

In addition to the history of the mine itself, the book deals with related subjects like the Ludlow & Southern Railway and the Stedman, Ragtown and Ludlow communities, whose fortunes were to a great extent tied to Bagdad Chase.
