The summer of 1917, when the war of the Copper Kings was winding down, was a highly charged time for Butte, which had a socialist mayor and no unions. This captivating profile of Frank Little, the hobo agitator, takes us back to that summer, when vigilantes ruled city and mines alike and shut the miners union right down.
