Mining for stories

       Matt Mathisen, who spent years in deserts and jungles around the world while employed in mineral exploration, uses his cane to point to an exhibit during a presentation on his experiences at the Old Colorado City History Center Nov. 9. Now a tour guide at the Western Museum of Mining & Industry, he has written two books about his life (printed just for his family), titled: “77 years in 200 Pages” and “You Should Have Been There.”
