Description:
This story is built around the Brunner Mine Disaster of 1896, the biggest industrial accident in New Zealand's history. Tommy Carter is a typical boy living in the West Coast mining community of Dobson in 1896. Most of the boys are looking at a future down in the mines, but Tommy is not keen to follow his uncle's footsteps into the mining business, with its hardships and ever-present danger. One terrible day, Tommy's worst fears come true when an explosion rips through the mine. This fictional diary records the tragedy, heroism and bitter aftermath of NZ's worst-ever industrial disaster.
