KIRKUS REVIEW

The autobiography of an old man who has achieved fame as an expert in mining engineering. From a stupid schoolboy, he grew up to be a man who had found his niche, became a teacher, wrote the first up-to-date book on ore dressing, and was part of the U.S. Geological Survey studying the black sands of the Pacific. Received Legion D'Honneur, at eighty five. For those interested in engineering rather than in biography, for here lies the emphasis.
