Growing Up in St. Francois County by James Bequette

Book Description

In 1673, Father Marquette and Louis Joliet paddled southward down the Mississippi River and maintained a detailed journal of their observations. Their reports spoke glowingly of vast mineral deposits in the area destined to become Southeastern Missouri. From those earliest known beginnings, and continuing until the outbreak of the Civil War, numerous mining camps flourished. The St. Joseph Lead Company, located in Bonne Terre, St. Francois County, became the world's largest producer of lead ore. With nearly 100 vintage images and personal stories of growing up in Bonne Terre, James Bequette's informative memoir displays the influence the lead company had on the community, and in turn the love the community had for St. Joe. The first image seen by visitors of the town ring true, proclaiming "Welcome to Bonne Terre: Good Earth-Good People."
