Item description for Memoirs of a Mud-Puddler by Michael F Ridd...
This autobiography describes a childhood of simple rural pleasures, a growing delight in the outdoors, and the discovery of geology which led the author to a career in oil exploration. Dust storms in the Sahara, helicopter incidents in Alaska, snakes in Southeast Asia - a feast of stories of travel and adventure are interwoven with vignettes of the world of oil exploration and a personal account of the author's own development as an entrepreneur running his own oil company. Loves and losses along the way complete the picture of a life lived to the full by one of Nature's optimists.
