Timber For Gold
ISBN:1 86368 372 0
The eagerly awaited re-issue of the story of the goldfields woodlines is a sample history of Australia. It is a pioneer story of hard work and living rough in remote and difficult conditions; a story of extraordinary improvisation and bush know-how; of migrant families struggling to establish themselves in a new land; and a story of the enormous ecological impact on a fragile environment.
The woodlines are among the untold stories in the history of gold discovery and mining in Australia. In his new book Bill Bunbury talks to the men and women who lived through these extraordinary, little-known experiences and they tell of the fear, hardship and despair, the courage and the joys, and of the wonderful friendships forged from adversity.
