“James Snell gives us a portrait of an extraordinary true story. It should be known to the world. He writes with intelligence and a touch of poetry that will make your emotions vibrate. We are transported into the world’s greatest discovery of gold and the genius of the man who discovered it. Windows of the family life behind the man are opened and give the reader a full understanding of the magnitude of the suffering and the injustice he and his family lived. A must read by everyone in this time where truth should be extracted and brought to full light!” Johanne Perron
