From Aaron Brown's autobiographical tales, you gradually get a sense of this remarkable region, once home to the world's richest iron ore deposits. Now it has the largest man made empty pits whose resources fed our steel mills through two world wars and the growth of the auto industry.
The hard working people of the Range carry on today, working still substantial deposits of the lesser ores known as taconite. The story of the Range and its people flows naturally from the pen of this talented writer. Don't miss the hilarious tale of the mysterious radar ball.
