For many years the looking down from San Pedro Vista the view included large towers that marked the location of the San Manuel Copper Mine. The towers are gone and the mine has shut down – but it operated for over 50 years and is forever part of the history of the area. This book is made up of remarkably personal, intimate and interesting stories and pictures from Tafoya’s long career in the mine.
