Item description

WEANED ON CARROT JUICE By Gerardo Joffe Some Photographs Included Copyright: 2003. First Edition stated. Published by Advance Books. 432 Pages. Book Boards are in Good condition. Pages are Clean Tight. Dustjacket is in Good condition with some light edge shelf wear. From the Front Cover....... How I survived the Nazis and landed at the Golden Gate via the tin mines of Bolivia and the oil fields of Arkansas. From the flyleaf:...... He was born in Germany, lived through the Nazi period and left the country on almost the "last boat." He spent eight years working in the tin, tungsten and antimony mines of Bolivia, living at altitudes of up to 16,000 feet. In this book he tells us of his outstanding adventures and experiences and how by dint of effort, wit, and know-how he became at the age of only twenty-three years, chief engineer of the second-largest tin mine in the world. His story of the corpse in the ore pass and how he single-handedly rescued a minor from almost certain death will keep you on the edge of your seat. Gerardo Joffe followed the girl he believed to be his true love to the United States. We learn how this romance fizzled out. He graduated as a mining engineer from the University of Missouri at Rolla and, after work as a hardrock miner in the lead-silver mines of the Panhandle of Idaho, the deepest in the country, he worked for eight years in the oil fields of Arkansas as a petroleum engineer. His keen insight into events and people, his ability to observe and to report make it a delight to follow his path. Multiple orders add .50 Per Book for combined shipping costs.
