A Rock Fell on the Moon: Dad and the Great Yukon Silver Ore Heist (Harbour Publishing) is longtime journalist Alicia Priest’s lively, heartrending memoir of her own investigation into an infamous crime committed by her father in the 1960s: the theft of over $160,000 worth of silver ore (easily half a million dollars in today’s currency) out from under the nose of his employer and one of the largest mining companies in Canada, United Keno Hill Mines (UKHM). Her account also provides a fascinating look into the small mining communities that once thrived in the Yukon.
