Mining is a legitimate and honorable enterprise. It contributes immensely to the national wealth. It has been the source of some of our great fortunes. Because there is something magical in the suggestion of gold or coal or copper taken out of the ground, sharpers have made mining an instrument of successful deception. They have tricked people into investing their savings in worthless or even non-existent mines. Perhaps you who read this have bitten at an advertisement in a reputable publication, which pretended to place the wealth of some western El Dorado at your feet for a few hundred dollars. Doubtless your money has disappeared. It is for the purpose of giving you the protection of a knowledge both of legitimate mining and of the ways of thieves that this article is published. AMERICA is the land of the free and the country of opportunity for all. Incidentally, it is free hunting-ground for sharpers, and a land of opportunity for the unscrupulous. No such chances for fraudulent business exist anywhere else in the world. Americans are the richest people on earth, and the most easily parted from their money. Those whose sole ambition is to get rich quick very frequently help some other man to get rich quick. Society owes no debt to either of these. It is obliged to support them both. This is wrong both as a moral and as an industrial proposition. Once, a dollar was spent to mine a dollar. To-day two are spent: One dollar goes into blasting powder, the other into advertising and office furniture. No doubt you have heard the age-old legend of the Mother Vein of Gold, which appears and vanishes, now and again, in this corner of the world. Superstition regarding this great original vein of gold is found wherever men seek the precious metal. The feverish Spaniards called this phantom lode the Madre d’Oro, or “Mother of Gold.” Now it is located in Mexico, now in India or Peru, California or Australia. Tradition says that Montezuma got his gold from this great vein, which lay in a secret valley whose whereabouts was jealously guarded by three priests of the war tribe, sole possessors of the knowledge. Any intruder who by chance or design looked down into this valley was smitten absolutely blind. Tradition among the successors of the Aztecs says that when Montezuma passed, the Madre d’Oro sank back again into the earth, and has been seen no more. Men still follow the phantom vein. Those who see it, even in their dreams, still are smitten blind.

Author Frank McQuirk's life began on an auspicious note, and he has since spent a lifetime exploring and perfecting his psychic abilities. As the seventh son of an Irish family, he was destined to have special abilities. Now, in this intimate and heartfelt autobiography, he shares the details of his life and his remarkable gifts. He has lived in nine different countries and is an adept student of their customs, beliefs, and practices. For a decade, he studied under master psychic Mary Valla and conducted classes on the law of abundance and aura viewing. The aura is a band of dim light that surrounds everyone and is normally invisible to our eyes. Frank discovered a simple method whereby everyone can view the aura in fifteen minutes-and he now shares his technique in full detail here. Frank also shares the secrets to astral travel and how you can harness a simple method to eliminate negative feelings in your life, rebuild your peace of mind after trauma, or recapture your dignity after embarrassment. Along with his discoveries, Frank shares the details and adventures of his life with the charm of a leprechaun and the audacity of the legendary Pooka, a phantom dog sent to help those who deserve divine guidance. Frank and the Pooka shared a lifelong bond. Through his life's lessons, adventures, and pains, Frank has found a way to navigate it all with hope. His approach to life is to avoid negativity, and this mindset will bring peace of mind to those who embrace it.

"Industry in the Wilderness by Frank Rasky is an account of the overcoming of natural elements in order to harvest the resource wealth of northwestern Ontario. It is part of the Dundurn Local History series. It is an oral history of lumberjacks, gold seekers, bush pilots, and early hydro men. Herein lies the major problem with the book. Rasky attempts to cover four important aspects of northwestern Ontario in only 128 pages. This impossible task is even further complicated by the fact that more than half of the book is devoted to pictures and diagrams ... The pictures and diagrams dominate the book to such an extent that one could ignore the text and still find a wealth of information about the topic. The diagrams of a paper mill, a gold mine, and a hydro-electric power plant could be a valuable teaching aid to students interested in those areas. The pictures are exceptionally good."--Umanitoba.ca/cm/cmarchive/vol12no5/industryinthewilderness.html.

Growing up in the rugged gold mining country of Northern Ontario in the 1950's, Billy Tyler learns the harsh realities of life, and the strong values necessary to survive and succeed in an environment of wilderness beauty, lawlessness and greed. Billy's courageous attempt to rescue the passengers of a downed aircraft on a frozen northern lake, teaches him that true courage knows no boundaries. The fight for survival against a devastating flood, characterizes for Billy, the strength and perseverance of his frontier neighbors; many of them gold miners accustomed to danger. An eerie encounter with a young drowning victim brings an awareness of the reality of life and death. A summer job with the Circus leads to an association with some unsavory characters. A brutal attack on Caitlin, a circus friend, and the ensuing police investigation, creates awareness in Billy that stereotyping of any particular group of people can be dangerous. Billy's discover of a corpse buried beside a lake, leads to contact with the Algonquin Indian Nation and the Spirit World which permeates its culture. Billy's friendship with the charming, roguish leader of a Syndicate established to buy and sell gold stolen from the mines, results in much soul searching and conflicting values. The tenderness of a first love between Billy and Holly, the pretty, vivacious teenager, is played out against a background of excitement and adventure.
