The Dry Digginís Club
A historical novel by Bob Weldin
†††††††† This DRY DIGGIN'S CLUB started as a documentary about wilderness experiences by the author and fellow field geologists. It ultimately became a historical novel when the author found it awkward to write history about characters who are still alive.
†††††††† † Itís a story of adventure, risk taking, romance and intrigue by a group of young mining professionals. One of the protagonists is a female geologist who breaks into the all masculine domain of exploration geology, and helps in the creation a clandestine club that networked for pleasure and economic advantage.
†††††††† Historically, the novel deals with mining and minerals exploration methods of the 1960s, and some lasting sociopolitical impacts that occurred to the US mining industry during that decade.
†††††††† The book was written for historians, adventurers, risk takers, and those who might quest for lost mines and valuable mineral deposits. Some characters discover their soul mate or something within themselves that is more valuable than the riches they sought. ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††
