GHOST TOWNS OF NEW ZEALAND

Author: David McGill

Published in 1997 by REED Books.
248 pages with many black and white photos.
Book is in good condition.

This book tells the tale from the pioneering pillage of whales, gold, Kauri, coal and gum, to the final decline and death of what once were prospering industries. It recreates the vigorous boom days of tent towns which sprang up overnight in response to whispered rumours and which disappeared just as mysteriously. It revives the atmosphere of the lawless pleasurepots with too many pubs and newspapers, but which at least offered temporary respite from a day spent double down a mine shaft, or monotonously scraping gum. It also tells of the shipbuilding and railhead towns, the flax towns and those that defy categorisation, all of which are no more.
