It is about my travels and experiences in a few gold mining districts in Guyana, selling consumer goods to miners (land miners and river miners), Shop-keepers , prostitutes, indigenous peoples ,and eventually working for gold.I first visited a town, known as Bartica, the gateway to the mining districts . I took some consumer articles with me , to sell and defray my travelling expenses . There , at the town, I met new friends, who advised me to sell these commodities in the mining districts . I seized the challenge and immediately ventured to some of these areas .One year later, I returned to some of these areas to sell to miners , and did this on a regular basis for approximately one year. Twice during that year (1987), I stopped selling and engaged in routine working for gold, being allured to the activity by the apparent large gains to be obtained .All the experiences gained during those travels are narrated in this monograph .
