Published by Greybird Publishers, 196 pages

Butch Holcombe the owner of “American Digger Magazine” and Co-Host of In “The Dirt with American Digger” every Saturday online, has not missed with this gem of a book. It is fast passed and full of information that every metal detectorist needs to know. It covers every aspect of the hobby from choosing the right machine for you use to choosing the right spot in the woods for other reasons.

So, in one since it is a how to book, on the other side of the coin, you don’t know that you’re learning anything. The information is so masterfully entwined with humor that the knowledge seeps in without you even knowing about it. Kind of like sleeping on a book, you wake up and there it is – “Instant knowledge.”

Butch Holcombe is the only one to date that has brought humor to this side of recovering the past. It is a must read, even if you don’t metal detect you will find yourself laughing just because it’s funny. This is a book for the library (either one), the rocking chair, the sharing with the kids. It truly is a no miss book. If you have someone that is hard to by for and they have a sense of humor at all you will not go wrong with this one.

The book is available online at, Amazon or a host of other retailers.
