NEW BOOK TITLES            (Geological)

" DIGGER ''

 

     

Published in Australia

This outback classic  is a true story of a naïve Pom who stops at a pub in a Goldfields ghost town. He’s equipped with a shovel, a suitcase of books and a dog with a stupid name.

“I’d like to find some gold!” he announces brightly.

The huge bloke behind the bar takes a pull on his cigarillo and squints through the smoke: “Yeah,” he drawls quietly, “there’s a few around here who’d like to do that…”

At the age of nine, Max Anderson dug holes in his parents' back garden hoping to find treasure. At 36, he dug another hole for himself: he quit his well-paid job to try his luck among the hard-bitten gold prospectors of the West Australian Goldfields.

Funny, honest and uplifting, DIGGER is an outback classic combining a modern adventure story with one of the greatest chapters in Australian history – the opening of the desert Goldfields.

When it was first published in the UK in 2005, DIGGER sold over 20,000 copies, with Reader’s Digest subsequently printing an abridged version in four languages.

Now ...  MiningFM is proud to launch this long-overdue third edition, complete with a revised introduction and 16 pages of unseen photos. The perfect gift for old diggers, new diggers and people who’ve never been near a mine site, DIGGER is a heart-warming journey that brings to light priceless characters and gleaming rewards…
