New Gold Detecting Book Nearing Completion

The first picture shows Chris using a Minelab GPX detector,

I was going to say that first pic looks like Chris Gholson. :smile:

I would be more interested in the content of the book regardless of the cover. But the cover will of course set the book off. I think like Rob said, to make it a bit more personal to you & have you doing something gold related on the cover. That gets my vote....oh....& I would be in for a copy regardless. ? I do love that big sassy Zed gold nugget though. :wub:  Will my day ever come? :unsure:

Best of luck out there.

Reese,

I definitely want a copy of your book.  It sounds like you have put a lot of thought and knowledge in it.

I am a Montana prospector who has spent many a winter in Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, and California.

I am 74 but I know I am not too old to learn.

Sounds interesting.....  Sounds like some know you.  Might I ask what your background is?  How many years detecting?  Probably have that info in your book but thought I would ask...

I have been detecting for gold and coins since 1980 and I have been prospecting since 1980.  I have been fortunate to have had many conversations with  some great minds when it comes to gold, geology in relationship to gold such as Clay Lewis, who was 81 years old when he died in 2001 or 2002. He had mined for gold every single year since 1930 or 1931. He was very smart when it came to gold and was willing to share what he knew. Another old timer who shared his know how with me was George Kornec who was 83 when he died in 2016. He was even more savy when it came to gold and geology and was willing to pass down what he knew. George once went to help another miner on his claim to figureout where the gold was when someone was waiting for them and shot George in the hip with a rifle. The miner he was helping had to rush him to a hospital. He was raised at the home his dad built on his claim since the 30's which he workeduntil he died. I also had many converations and some geological field trips with Robin McCulloch who was the former Chief Mining engineer with the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology.  There are a few others whom I went detecting with who were very helpful through the years. Gold prospectors by nature are inquisitive, resourceful and inventors by nature. It takes root and grows in a person when they take up the call to search for the elusive yellow metal. I learned alot from these guys and I learned alot from from trial and error. Trying new ideas that end up fruitless will help you just as much as ideas that bear fruit.

Hi Reese,

Glad to know you're putting a book together. 

I imagine it will be an interesting read as you live in a state that has an incredible history of producing lots of sassy gold.

All the best,

Lanny

Sounds like you certainly have the background for the book!  Those old timers are sure great to know, aren't they? Thanks for sharing that info.

I think I panned my first gold in the mid 1950's  (almost an "old timer"!!)

Be looking for the book.

My wife and I "self published" several family books through DiggyPod.  Quite easy to do.

      For all who are interested in getting a copy, my book will be online in roughly 2 weeks. The cover will be done tomorrow (Thursday May 16) and it is impressive. I am really happy with what this new graphic designer came up with. The website is being worked up right now by an outfit out of California and the site will go live in a couple weeks. There will be a pay pal  button to pre order the books. My domain name will be goldseekerbooks.com    . The first 280 paid preorders will get a hand signed book. The printer will be notified by email to begin printing once the first 280 copies are sold. This book will have 170 full color photos with detailed captions describing what I want everyone to pay attention too. Many photos have color coded graphics on the photos to go along with the captions. This book is high quality with premium paper and premium inks for better sharper images. It will be worth every penny of the $24.95 retail price.
