Book overview

Why are people prepared to kill – and die – for gold? In this enlightening and entertaining work, award-winning author Peter Macinnis gets inside the heads and shoes of gold seekers, seeking to find why and how they acted as they did.

It’s an Australian history that sits within a world context, with the author propelled by his curiosity from Australia’s goldfields to California and Spain via New Zealand, and complemented by much reading of little-known original sources. The result is sparkling history, involving real people.
