Notes from the author:

"Working Deep Down Underground is the product of just over 14 months of work between mine surveyor, Jake Harris and the popular mining animators, Mining Boom.

The words were penned by Jake during flights back and forth to his mine site in Western Australia. It is written by a mine worker, for other mining families to share what processes, machines and people work in an underground mine."

Awesome book with great detail about underground mining

We love our new book, it is so good to see what Dad/partner and his mates do. It is simple and easy to read with great pictures. It taught my son and I more about what his dad does!

Haven’t received

Email says both of my books have been delivered. Bought both of my sons one for Christmas. Ordered weeks and weeks in advanced didn’t make Christmas, though it’s ok but now it says they have been delivered and still nothing. So I guess I’m out of money. Would give zero stars but can’t.
