Gemstones from Maine are well-known, but the lust for feldspar was also real, because it also meant money. There was never a huge profit in this mineral and tiny amounts of money still created conflicts, predatory relationships between mills and workers, and sometimestore apart families. There is more myth than fact in most reports of Maine mining. This book is a hardcore look at Maine feldspar mining and the people who struggled to make a living from it. Hardcover 300 pages
