Bill sent me a very rough draft about 5 years ago and I received an advance pre-published copy about a week ago and helped de-bug the very few errors I found in the text. I have known Bill for many years now and have gone on a number of U hunts out in Utah, New Mexico, Virginia and North Carolina with him. Carl Willis joined us around Moab in 2009 and later in Virginia. Bill's first book was a huge success and was written up here. "Living with Radiation, The First 100 years"
His new book simply titled "Trinitite" is a one of a kind book about the Trinity blast, its site and, of course, the mineral itself. A must have for any well turned out rad-freak or atomic history nut. Tons of great info of a highly technical nature as well as the humorous tale of Ralph Pray and his 1 ton rip-off of Trinitite in 1951.
