This is a captivating true-life adventure about exploration and discovery. As a geologist, I know the geoscience is real and of the type that would be used for these type searches. The writing is great, almost firsthand so the excitement comes through. One aspect I like about this book is that the success of the searches was due of the used applicable geoscience and clear thinking, following the high motivation of Mr. Fipke. The success was not just luck but the product of these two factors, motivation and clear technical thinking.

This is a great read for anyone thinking about a science career and how it often begins evolves. ( )
