The scrap business is changing radically due to big corporate ownership and the old family scrapyards are almost all being vacuumed up by the big boys. This book caught a lot of the info that would have been gone when there were no more scrap familiy members to tell the tale.
It has a great history of why you're a social outcast as scrap hauler. It's a tradition that goes way back.
Having been in the business for a while I can tell you a lot of the haulers still give the public good reason to hate them.
Another interesting angle here is the progress made in how steel was melted.
As time went on less and less raw scrap was needed to make steel. Definitely a problem if you supply scrap.
If you have any interest in scrap you'll enjoy this one.
