A New Book, A Fun Book……

Just received my signed edition of “From the Ground Up” by Chris Altmann, and it’s a winner…

There are a zillion books on the market about what we do, as in metal detecting, but very few that offer a “fun” read. “From the Ground Up” fills that void…

This book is about Chris and Kim’s (his wife) many days in the field detecting, both here and abroad, and all the things that happened along the way.

If you are looking for details on how to set up your detector, forget it. If you want a book that has practical, useful information, based on years of experience, then add this one to your library. I guarantee you it’s unlike  any metal detecting book you have read before.

Starting with Chris’s very first find with his “Christmas present”, you’ll find info on beach hunting, relic hunting, fossils, and even a chapter on “critters”.  “From the Ground Up” is a great read. It is 138 pages long, filled with photos and illustrations, very well written, and at $16.00, a real bargain.

Once you start reading this book you will find it hard to put it down. I highly recommend this to every metal detector user….

    Knowing nothing about metal detecting I found a wealth of information in Chris Altmann’s book that was easy to understand, historical and very entertaining. I highly recommend it. Margaret Normile
