By A Customer on September 3, 1999
I have read many books on mining in the northwest, this is the most accurate. With this book I was able to follow the paths of the miners before me, it's amazing. The book provides so much information on a particular mine, I have to read it several times just to absorb the information. I have traveled to many of the mine locations in the book and never been disappointed. After reading about the history and exploring for myself, I can't wait for the second edition to be released. Most mining books talk about history yet never lead you to the magical place. With a GPS and a good compass, I have experienced a overwhelming respect for these writers. For once, I'm a kid again exploring the mountains for buried treasures. I have visited many of the historic sites this year, thanks to these writers I have truly experienced God's Country.

I just finished reading this book. I wasn't aware of the interesting history behind the old mines and mining camps I have come accross in the mountains of Washington State until I read this book. Now I am an athority on the subject and can't put the book down. This book should be a text book for every high school student of Washington State history.

This book was absolutely spellbinding. It not only makes for good reading curled up by the fire, but whets the appetite, to go explore the locations described when the weather warms and the snow melts. Well worth the money and I can't wait for Volume Two.

I love exploring old mines and tailing piles. This book showed me how to get to some of the best old gold mines and tailing piles I have ever prospected with a metal detector.
