Today, with gold at high levels, new interest is being shown in historic riverbanks which, in 1897-98, drew tens of thousands from every walk of life and every corner of the globe. Today, for the first time in nearly a century, every square foot of Bonanza and Eldorado creeks, site of the most feverish activity during the Klondike excitement, has again been staked and is being worked, by weekend amateur and large syndicate alike. Yet others are doing their \"mining\" in the collection of coins, objects d\'art, and bullion, in the belief that gold is the only sure hedge against worsening inflation. Whatever one\'s reason for becoming interested in gold - and who is not - author Garnet Basque has compiled a fascinating, factual and comprehensive history of gold, complete with details of how to search for - and how to find - nuggets and placer lodes; perhaps even the fabled \"mother lode.\" There are chapters on such topics as: Gold Throughout the Ages, Some Facts About Gold, How to Locate Placer Gold, The ABC\'s of Gold Panning, How to Recover Fine Gold, Equipment, and much more. (5 1/2 X 8 1/4, 108 pages, b&w photos, maps, diagrams)
