Great Story Book Publishing, Bellingham, WA, 2014. First published under the title: Hot Coffee and other Wild Goose Tales. From the back cover: Wanderlusting is one man's story, alternately funny and hair-raising, about his tsravels after he dropped out of graduate school in the 1970s. Gary McWilliams? chose a working man's life, and worked side by side with an international cast of miners, sailors, and fishermen, corossing paths too with missionaries, smugglers, and revolutionaries. His unusual adventures will keep you reading into the night. I met the author in the late 1970s when he was a mineral specimen wholesaler in Silverton, CO. One of my favorite stories is of when he worked at the Sunnyside mine near Silverton and was told to drill up into Lake Emma above the mine. Paperback, 8 3/4" x 6", 435 pages.
