"Raymond's essays are . . . tightly constructed and superbly written. . . . Goin's images, which are creatively integrated with the text, are as beguiling as they are striking. Much the same can be said for the historical prints interspersed throughout the book.. . . . Anyone searching for the trail that connects our landscapes of mineral production with our landscapes of consumption will likely find the essays and photographs in Changing Mines in America absorbing and thought-provoking."
