Coin and Relic Detecting in Australia, Douglas M. Stone
1 Coin and Relic Detecting in Australia
Douglas M. Stone Australia Outdoor Press 2016 0959639241 / 9780959639247 Hardcover New No Jacket Book 28.0 x 21.0 x 2.3 cm 
Treasure! Coin and relic hunting has come of age. No longer is treasure hunting the realm of the get-rich-quick fringe and the bad reputation associated with the destruction of historic sites. Metal detectors are now recognised as sophisticated detection tools that can distinguish precious metals from surrounding soils and rubbish. This ensures minimum disturbance to the search area. This guide has been designed to enable you to identify your finds and put them into context within Australia's evolving history. We describe the specialist metal detectors which will help to detect valuable coins and jewellery among the junk strewn fields. We'll also show you how to identify prospective areas to coin and relic hunt and interpret the signs of previous human occupation. We describe the special techniques required to unearth your find. It is imperative that the target is not damaged while digging it out of the ground and the surrounding area is not scarred in the process. This is especially important when detecting in public parks and beaches. We also describe the specialist tools and electronic pin-pointing devices that will assist in both the park and beach. This guide covers: Man-made or natural targets, How metal detectors work, Detector operation technique, Specialised tools for coin & relic extraction, Choosing a treasure hunting detector, Where to treasure hunt, Research, Themes to stimulate your search, The law of finding, Identifying your finds, Displaying your finds, Treasure hunts & ethics,

Ten Thousand Campfires: On Safari in the Outback, Africa and India, Rex Ellis
10 Ten Thousand Campfires: On Safari in the Outback, Africa and India
Rex Ellis Australia Boolarong Press 2012 1921920653 / 9781921920653 Soft cover New Book 23.0 x 16.5 cm 
You have probably seen Rex Ellis on TV. He is constantly turning up on the box with his team of camels and his adventurous urban guests hanging on for dear life somewhere in the sandy wastes of the Red Heart, maybe near Birdsville. Or traversing Lake Eyre full of water and pelicans in his beloved tinny. Rex lives a nomadic, desert life out there that you and I can only dream about. For a desert wanderer he is pretty talkative and has a mad sense of humour, but when he does do his block with a recalcitrant safari guest or a stubborn camel, he gets volcanic. Ellis has the knack of extracting the ridiculous or the absurd essence wherever he travels. He is an observer of the human condition, and focuses by inclination on the farcical. Perhaps his lifetime of observing outback wildlife gives him an excellent basis for a comparative study of crazy human behaviour. He has always taken paying guests on his outback adventures, and his colourful and varied descriptions of their shenanigans will bring great satisfaction to the superior armchair adventurer. And of course every evening there is the campfire. Ellis sees the campfire as the quintessence of the freedom of the outback, the relaxation after a hard day's yakka, the yarn spinning, the chai-yacking and the camaraderie that develops so easily while you all stare at the mysterious, inspiring flames rather than at a mind-deadening TV set. This is the very essence of outback travelling, and Ellis's highly emotional introduction leaves no doubt about the way he feels about these magic evenings. So, folks, it's still not too late! If you can't get out there straightaway, then read the book. Ten Thousand Campfires leaves no doubt that there is still plenty of the real, old-fashioned Australia in the Red Heart and it is pretty easy to distinguish it from what the author refers to as the 'sanitized' metropolitan Australia.
