On occasion, I run across books that I enjoy reading and that I feel might be of interest to my friends and customers. Here are some books like that! I've included a "review" plus an indication of postal costs to various parts of the world. Postal cost is for the book alone and would be less if combined with a mineral order. I hope there is one that is of interest to you!

  • Ignominiously dismissed from his post as a junior geologist at a large gold mine, Timothy starts a new job at a rundown gold mine in rural South Africa. The eccentric locals persuade the young geologist to join them in a series of unconventional and illegal schemes to reprieve the old mine. Timothy struggles through encounters with African wildlife, consultants, riots, the spirit world, explosions, government officials and a frustrating sex life in an attempt to find some real gold to save their tight knit community. This book, although crude in some parts, is entertaining and reflective of real mining life in that part of the world. It is great fun to read a book that incorporates mining lingo, slang and customs, accurately. There just are not many books that do! An entertaining read!
