Creede Camp became one of the giants of the industry and, during the hundred years or so it was in operation, was responsible for the excavation of approximately 183 miles of underground mine workings.

Huston traces the history of these mines all the way back through the geological processes that formed the San Juan Mountains. In doing so, he also details the origins of the mineral deposits that later attracted thousands of miners, prospectors, and investors from all over the world.
