Coal on the Lehigh 1790 – 1827

Beginnings and Growth of the Anthracite Industry in Carbon County, Pennsylvania

Michael Knies relates the difficulties encountered by the first groups of speculators seeking to make their fortunes from the black nuggets that were to be found on Pennsylvania’s wild frontier.

He examines the careers of the first men to speculate in anthracite, some of them devoting their lives to this venture, and looks at the early development of settlements in the upper Lehigh Valley.
