Capitalism comes to the American West - and the Copper Kings of Butte, Montana, wrestle each other and Montana's fledgling government for control of the "richest hill on earth." When newsman John Fellowes Hall arrives in Butte, he sees a mess of smoky mine boilers and makeshift sheds. It's ugly as sin, but it's the best place to get rich. It's also a city full of stories. As an employee of mining titan William Andrews Clark, Hall finds himself involved in the best story of them all: the fight among the Copper Kings.

The Richest Hill on Earth tells the stories of Marcus Daly, an immigrant mine owner; his rival William Andrews Clark, who has bought himself a U.S. Senate seat; and Augustus Heinze, who used lawyers and judges to try to steal the mines only to be crushed by the Rockefellers.
