Edited by Ted Mayman

“This collection of stories brings vividly to life the Kalgoorlie goldfields through boom and depression, from the determined old fossickers to the days of the large-scale companies.  The physical landscape of the mines is ever present, but more important are the diverse characters themselves.  The three authors have spent significant periods of their lives on the goldfields and write on all aspects of mining life: the dangers, the rewards, the ingenious attempts to obtain illicit gold, the lives of  the women who are wives and mothers to the colourful, comic and sometimes violent miners.”
