Heat showed the Beauvais mug shot. We won’t take much of your time. A thick timber crosspiece formed an arch overhead. Implanted in its center sat a rectangular steel plate whose white paint showed weathering and blossoms of rust. The sign, cut from the hull of an old ship, read in black letters COSMO. Rook appraised the gate, which was made of heavy wood that matched the crossbeam.

The primary focus of Taking the Heat is Sarver’s 20 year stretch in his steel mill’s melt shop. The book describes adverse working conditions that include exposure to extreme heat, working in excessive dirt and air-borne dust, and functioning in a high-noise environment.

In similar fashion to Moby-Dick, Taking the Heat is, on one level, a book about a vocation, replete with detailed descriptions of work processes and equipment.

Those steel and coke works that were consolidated were: Sciota Ore Mines. The Homestead Strike arose when Henry Clay Frick, an associate and partner of Carnegie, took over while Carnegie traveled to Scotland.
