Having grown up in the small mining town described in "Suffer Smoke" many years ago, Elena Bjorkquist's stories and writing style were a perfect compliment for a "stroll down memory lane". The days of mining towns where the "company" owned all the homes, businesses and controlled the schools is, fortunately, fading but there was also plenty of magic to be found. Growing up in a small, isolated town where most people worked for the same company ( here, copper mining)! gives a kind of unity of experience of all who lived there. Even though the author was of a generation before me, I loved the book and recommend to anyone interested in the life and culture of the area.

This book is an amazing portrait of life in a AZ copper mining town by an author who was raised there. She does an amazing job of painting a mural of life there for the multigenerational Hispanic community. It makes you know everything you'd want to know about Morenci AZ.

Suffer Smoke is delightful book full of interesting mining history with a gracious salting of local folklore. The book isn't organized like a novel so you can pick it up, read a few chapters, then put it back down for another day. The descriptions of how the largest and wealthiest copper producer in this fee world generally treated it immigrant workers illustrates social disparities found similarly in The Grapes of Wrath. Having grown up in the same town, only many years later, I found my mind wandering the streets of my childhood but walking in the footsteps of the ghostly characters.
