In this book, "old time" prospector and gem cutter Fred J. Rynerson gives us a memoir of his fifty-four years of adventures prospecting and gem hunting. Not only does he recount treasure found and lost, and his encounters with floods, rattlesnakes, and desert thirst, but he also gives useful hints on how to locate valuable minerals and gems, prospective places to hunt for lost riches, and other useful information that should interest any amateur prospectors. An intimate and often humorous glimpse into the life of a adventurous man and his hobby. Illustrated with black and white photos. Paperbound: 204 pages: 5.5 x 8.5"
