Opals of the Never Never, Haill, Robert G.
11 Haill, Robert G. Opals of the Never Never
Kenthurst, NSW, Australia Kangaroo Press 1995 0864176864 / 9780864176868 Revised Edition Paperback New 6" x 9" 
New, unread, unmarked. The fascinating and raucous history of an enduring Australian boom town. The outback outpost of Cobber Pedy has been the focus of a sustained opal rush since 1915. OPALS OF THE NEVER NEVER explores the town, the gem, and their inexorable link. Historians, sociologists, gem collectors and curiosity seekers will appreciate the singular phenomenon that is Cobber Pedy. OPALS OF THE NEVER NEVER is a lay person's guide to opal mining. Australia supplies opal to the jewelry trade of the whole world, and Coober Pedy produces the bulk of that. Coober Pedy (originally known as the Stuart Range) is an outback Australian town in the far north of South Australia, in the middle of a desert. The Aboriginal definition of Cobber Pedy is "white man in a burrow." U.S. mineral rushes for gold, silver and eventually uranium were brief and furious -- the hasty, rollicking communities that sprung up to support them are now ghost towns. Yet, while Cobber Pedy is a boom-town, its longevity defies the textbook definition and makes its history unique and fascinating. ; 128 pages

A World of Ferns introduces the wealth of variation in ferns through their natural habitats and opens up the world of ferns to everyone. This full color book shows the wide range of ferns in a variety of habitats. Some ferns are undivided, others are so finely dissected that they resemble lace and they range in length from a few fractions of an inch to over 21 feet long. From deserts to polar regions, this book opens up the diverse world of ferns to everyone. A World of Ferns is an indispensable guide to identifying ferns. The three authors have all been studying ferns for a long time and have served on the committee of the British Pteridological Society. Clearly, this is one book to give someone to kindle an interest in ferns. Those already familiar with ferns will enjoy time and time again seeing so many diverse pteridophytes as if they were alive. --American Fern Journal; 112 pages

Some of the plants introduced by Bully were several crocuses rhododendrons, Himalayan primulas and many other alpine flowers.
