Richard OMalley
Richard K. O'Malley was born in Portland, Oregon, and moved to Butte when he was eight. He worked in the mines as a young man, and went on to become one of America's most respected journalists for The Associated Press, both here and abroad. In this memoir, written in Paris during the 1960's when he was Chief of Bureau there, he applies his flawless craft to the purpose of telling this amazing tale in the voice of a teenage boy, and in so doing, literally sweeps us along on a most remarkable voyage. If you are only going to read one book in this lifetime about Butte, Montana, this is the one.
