Uranium Frenzy: Boom and Bust on the Colorado Plateau

The federal government subsidized uranium mining during the early 1950s in preparation for the coming atomic age, endangering both the finances and health of prospectors. ``Ringholz intrigues the reader with an expert blending of science, adventure, industry mania, finance, human triumph and despair--and shameful official neglect,'' PW said.
