Digger by Max Anderson



Angela said: Max Anderson is a brilliant writer. His descriptions are so detailed and unique  . and the world's purest gold

Diamonds might be a girl’s best friend, but, like many of us, Max Anderson finds gold more moving. He could not resist the urge to join them and has now written about the adventure in a book that mixes some fine reportage on the modern-day prospector with a rite-of-passage story. Determined to dig his shaft, he abandons his job, family and friends, loads up his.

Details on Max Anderson's book about prospecting in Western Australia. I did it the hard way, turning up in an outback town of 12 people and telling the local publican, 'I'd like to find some gold'. I had a tent, a truck and a dog. And not a lot else. It was the most insane, most satisfying chapter of my life, and writing about it was an unalloyed pleasure. I'm pleased to say people who finish it are left rather more feverish than when they started

At the age of nine, Max Anderson diligently dug holes in his parents' back garden hoping to strike it rich. Digger is the story of a foreigner arriving unannounced and ill-equipped in a mining town  . Digger reveals what happens when rightly constructed boys lust after humanity's most pernicious metal.

Ever since he was a small boy, Max Anderson has been digging for buried treasure. From excavating his parent's garden, to unearthing a flint arrowhead in the fields nearby, he has always sought hidden riches. And so, years later, it made perfect sense for him to travel to one of the remotest parts of Western Australia to spend a year prospecting for gold. His journey took him to Kookynie, a town of eight buildings that stand in a landscape of rubble, foundations and mining waste - the remains of a town of 3,500 which died before the Great War began. Over a period of a year, Anderson osessively sought gold in the soil and landscape around him, at the same time digging his way to the bed rock of an obsession that threatened his relationships, health and sanity. His search for gold became a search for living history; his story also that of forgotten communities and a dying breed of man: the rugged prospector whose life is inextricably linked to the land he takes from.

it's a great book,it takes some getting accustommed to the aussie slang but he is very descriptive and uses an amazing array of words.
Ffyan
excellent read. i only found one confusing paragraph. one disappointment was that the book starts out at the start of the adventure instead of leading up to it more.
