This is the biggest and best collection yet. Biggest: almost twice the size of the first three collections. Best: In an eight part series complete with photographs he describes the process in detail of forming a partnership with several men, getting a lease, and hiring crews to erect an oil derrick and drill for oil. And because he provides photos of the boilers, engines, sand reel, derrick, tools, nitroglycerin shack and the wagon, and more, you'll swear you're standing right there with him!
