Thoroughly researched and amply illustrated with photographs, artwork and maps, Lamps Forever Lit is an important addition to the cumulative history of mining in Canada. It describes the geological conditions faced and overcome by the miners, the early isolation of northern mining towns, the melting pot of nationalities and the strong solidarity between miners. Additionally, it reveals the magnetism of mining, the strength of family and specific acts of courage by mining comrades in the face of tragedy.
