Publisher Description

The 1850s gold rushes  changed Australia forever when over a million 'diggers' arrived to make their fortune. This book tells of their determination, frustration and sometime success - and their stories of emigration, life on the goldfields, struggles with the colonial authorities and their lust for the bright shining metal. Stories from diaries, letters and early newspapers give an emotional history of these adventurous people. There are over 135 songs, many never before available including new bushranger ballads. Wonderfully illustrated the book also has a video introduction and several recordings to enhance the reader experience.
