Steel: The Story of Pittsburgh’s Iron and Steel Industry 1852-1902


By Dale Perelman

Steel portrays the growth of the iron and steel industry in smoke-filled Pittsburgh during the 19th century. This fast-paced saga tells the story of millionaire steel titans Andrew Carnegie, Ben Franklin Jones, Henry Clay Frick, Henry Phipps, and Charles Schwab--strong-willed men who often plotted and schemed against each other--yet united against their underpaid and undervalued pro-union immigrant workforce. The juxtaposition of the haves and the have-nots produced bloody battles which exploded throughout Western Pennsylvania's plants, mines, and railroad yards.
