Harvey Richards started and ended his photographic career with two films about mining. Perch of the Devil  was one of his first films, shot in Butte, Montana to support the 1960 strike of the United Mine Workers. As open pit mining replaced underground tunnel mining, he returned to the subject in his last film, A Tale of Ruin, that included footage from around the country where he filmed mining operations in 1972. He documented the immense open pit mines that have been laying waste to vast areas here and abroad.
