It was just a name, and yet somehow it had stayed in my mind – an idea, a prospect, something to go for if things didn’t improve.

It was just a name, and yet somehow it had stayed in my mind – an idea, a prospect, something to go for if things didn’t improve. I remembered the freckles and the snub nose and the odd way she’d talked, like somebody out of an old-fashioned magazine.

Inspired by Hammond Innes’s own extensive travels in Western Australia, Golden Soak is a classic story of adventure, daring, and greed at civilization’s edge. Fiction Thriller & Crime. One fee. Stacks of books.

Golden Soak" - written by Hammond Innes and published in 1973 by Alfred A Knopf. A lengthy, dark tale taking place in an Australian mine. Feb 08, 2013 Rick Piatt rated it liked it. The only way I can describe the experience of reading any Hammond Innes book is to say it feels like I'm reading a 1950's black & white movie. A very good black & white movie.

Innes, Hammond; And the country, in the clear cloudless dawn, flat as a pan. We were into the northern part of the Yilgarn Block, metamorphosed rock, all gibber, the gravel eroded in situ, hardly any watercourses. We were into the northern part of the Yilgarn Block, metamorphosed rock, all gibber, the gravel eroded in situ, hardly any watercourses, .ut a great salt lake before we ran into Wiluna. Kennie was driving then and I was dozing, my eyeballs pricking with tiredness, the heat already building. I had nearly hit a kangaroo in the grey hour before the dawn, but there weren’t many of them here on the edge of the Gibson.

Not his best.

I liked this. A bit slow in places but the stage is Australia's western desert country so it fits. Takes you to a place in time like only Innes can.

Throw her heart
Alec Falls studied at the Royal School of Mines in London and after that married Rosalind but his prospecting work in Belavedra ended in bad luck when his team hit granite with no vestige of tin or other mineral.

When Alec realises one day that Rosalind has left him, he decides to try his luck again in Australia, this time at an abandoned gold mine in Jarra Jarra, Golden Soak, which belongs to Ed Garrety, a man Alec met in Australia two years ago before returning to England. Before leaving their house in Cornwall, Alec sets it on fire with the hope that the media will spread the news that he died in the blaze. Will he be more successful in his second attempt at mining in Australia and will Golden Soak bring him the riches he craves for? Not an easy task in a country where the landscape is "a frozen hell, all that gold and red, and the sun a great disk blazing on the lip of the desert, sinking till its lower rim touched the horizon, melting along it like some great steel mould pouring molten metal."!
