About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for 40 YEARS PROSPECTING AND MINING IN THE BLACK HILLS OF SOUTH DAKOTA by Hebert, Frank.

Description:

Dark green cloth. 199 pages. Seven photo illustrations. (From title page): "He tells Indian stories, road agent stories, bear stories, mountain lion stories, and a ghost story. Locating copper mines, gold mines, mica mines and tin mines." (From dedication page): "Never mind, Helen, your Uncle Frank is going to tell you a story about the time he was on a Government Survey in western Nebraska; also about some of the things he did and saw while prospecting and mining in the Black HIlls of South Dakota for forty years. There is no fiction about it, either, for every word is true. So here goes:". (But someone has written neatly in ink on the last page of text: "This book is a fine bunch of well told lies; or who knows if some of it may be true. rd 11/2006.") The pages and plates are very good. The front cover has a glass ring on it, there is a short shallow wrinkle in the cloth on the rear cover, and minute corner wear. The front free endpaper has the previous owner's name (Harris Dunbar of Buffalo) and the date March 7/23. The most interesting thing about this book, though, is two pages of manuscript tipped in just after the title page, on the staionery of the Rapid City Daily Journal. It is dated March 13, and someone has added in pencil, "1923." Also in pencil at the top corner is "We were at Rapid City in June 1922 probably." The text of the letter is as follows: "Harris L. Dunbar. Buffalo, N. Y. Dear Sir: Your pleasant letter just received. I am sending you a copy of July 22 - 22, the only one I can find. I am also sending you a copy of Frank Hebert's book. The price is $2.00. I wouldn't say anything about the price only Mr. Hebert is in very poor circumstances, and every penny he gets from the sale of his book helps him to keep breath of life in his body. - And every order gratifies his disheartened desires for being thought well of. I am sending the book because I thought you would rather save time and get it without having to wait whle you found out how to receive it. Your truly, Mrs. J. B. Gossard, Managing Ed. of Journal.".
