    Many thanks! Your kindness in sharing this will give me many hours of enjoyable reading and learning during our big winter rainy season! I just now read the book about famous nuggets whose author wrote so well that it feels like going with the prospectors & miners who made huge nugget discoveries before 1900. All best to you! Andi

    Glad you enjoyed it

    Here is a list of 626 FREE to Read e-books on gold
    http://openlibrary.org/subjects/gold...=edition_count
    To scroll through them just click the green arrow on the right.

    I started out being hooked on the geology and the rocks & minerals handbooks and then started reading about the adventures of the 49'ers. Now I'm finding the adventures and the history during the gold rush to be very fascinating plus I like the old style of writing and I plan on reading them all!

    The Argonauts of 49'

    My Adventures in the Sierras
    http://www.archive.org/stream/myadve...ge/n5/mode/2up

    Just to name a couple.

    Thanks GoodyGuy!

    There are a lot of references and links for where I live, most of those BC references are a days drive or less, the Yukon not much farther.

    Cheers
