Descripción:

Alan Hamilton (Hammy) has had an active and varied life. As a boy he delivered milk from his family farm to Queenstwn housholders, worked and lived on a sheep farm and was a shearer for many years before becoming a pioneer of the deer farming industry in the Queenstown area.in the late 1970s. Born in the Wakatipu, and steeped in the history of the gold rush era of the 1860s, it was probably inevitable that Hammy, a trophy hunter of some note, would eventually get the gold seekers bug. From his teenage years he was an occasional prospector, consulted old timers for the tricks of the trade, panned most of the creeks and streams in Wakatipu region, used diving masks to scan stream beds for the gilint of gold and later graduated to modern technology in the form of metal detecting. Before "Hammy's Gold" he had written another book based on his experiences --- "Woolshed Yarns of the Wakatipu" --- and was ecouraged to repeat the exercise with his tales of gold prospecting. In later years he expanded his gold seeking expeditions to across the Tasman, giving "Hammy's Gold" the sub-title " Prospecting Yarns of the Wakatipu and Western Australia." It also tells of the gold rush years, some of the "legends" of that historic time with many anecdotes from past and present adding to his own adventures near home and in Australia. Published by the author, first edition of 2007, 159 pages, illustratedv throughout with colour photographs, colour tonings to historic photograsphs, few b/w photos, West Australia map and two other maps, few docuument reproductions. Author's ink signature on half-title. Colour pictorial card covers NF, ditto the text block. N° de ref. de la librería
