Content descriptions

General Note: "Limestone Lives is based on interviews that were conducted, transcribed and edited by the author from 1999 to 2002 in Monroe, Lawrence and Owen counties in Indiana"--(page 42).
Summary, etc.: Limestone Lives pays tribute to the skill and dedication of the men and women who work with stone. It combines 79 striking fine art photographic images with engaging oral histories, representing a range of voices of the workers themselves. We hear from sculptors, drill runners, stone polishers, planermen, forklift operators, a union leader, and the president of a stone company. The book also features brief descriptions of the region’s stone companies, a map locating Indiana quarries and stone mills, and a look at how the industry has changed over the years. Limestone Lives is a testament to men and women who take enormous pride in the quality of their work, as well as to the role this unique industry plays in creating buildings that last.
