Read the adventures of the man who won and lost a fortune chasing gold in the Northern Territory. Read about station owners, pioneers, drovers, and Aboriginal resistance fighters. These are the people who made Australia, and most of them you won’t find in any text book. 34 stories, 70 plus old photographs. Easy to read with a nice clear font. Australia’s past brought to life.
