“Broken Hill, a city of some 30,000 people lying well into the red interior of the Australian continent, is a community of world renown.  A legend in its own right, Broken Hill is spoken of whenever silver mining, unionism and pioneering hardships are mentioned.  Indeed, the name Broken Hill evokes images that express the very soul of Australia’s dynamic development.  The wealth that has poured from the mineral riches of Broken Hill can never be over-stated – and neither can the colour, romance and excitement of the city’s pioneering community.
In to Broken Hill and Back Ward McNally has captured the essence of both the historical Broken Hill and of the amazing, complex and dynamic personalities who are involved in keeping alive the spirit and industry of “the Hill” today.”
