Listing Detail Tabs

"The hero of this book," its author tells us, "is a sombre black hill frowning above a wilderness of mulga and saltbush. The heroine is Mother Earth, harsh indeed, but exceedingly beautiful." That black hill is of course Broken Hill, centre of the amazing activity that in the space of one man's lifetime has transformed a desolate little mining town with only a few years' expectation of life into a flourishing city, whose industries have set up a chain of development throughout Australia.

Theses memories and impressions are set down with the freshness and clarity of youthful vision, adding a special cram to a book already rich in interest as an astonishing story of industrial, regional, and national growth, with all it has meant in human struggle and achievement.
