For those who enjoy adventure, and who want to know more about prospecting, the author relates some of the remarkable experiences he and his wife have had on Maine rivers. There are simple and easy to follow instructions on how to pan and sluice, tips on dredging, and a list of the better streams and locations in Maine where gold can be traced. The material is illustrated with a selection of old and rare photographs. Best are the people one meets in this book: some are strong-willed eccentrics, others are gentle souls, but all are caught in the spell--that enchantment--the search for gold. 1997 paperback, 181 pages.
