Mates and Gold: Reminiscences of Early/Sligo, N. K./Paper/0859051951/S038-B
Bush life in the Western Australian desert, dangerous journeys and lonely deaths by typhoid, thirst, murder, spearing and retributional massacre. Vast new goldfields, gold won - and lost. Of bush mates and memories of a life long past.
Mates and Gold is an insight into the fortitude and humour with which the early prospectors faced the harshness of the goldfields and is one of the few books on the great 1890s gold rush written by one of the original prospectors.
