Jeff McNeish

Local historian Jeff McNeish, lecturer and author of the three-volume The Smith Mine Disaster Chronicles, preserves the stories of this region in an ongoing labor of love stemming from over a century of family history in the area. The extraordinary vintage images in this book tell of an amazing place and time in Montana's history and are presented thanks to the efforts of the Carbon County Historical Society and like-minded individuals who refuse to let the memory of this remarkable place fade.
