Listing Detail Tabs


by JS & RW Murray

The miners - and their families - paid a heavy price for extracting gold from the Clutha. There was backbreaking, heartbreaking, mindless toil, often for no reward; hazards and hardships of travel; high mortality from floods, from extremes of climate, from men of violence and greed. Robbers and swindlers, illness and accident took their toll.

Yet there are also many stories of human courage, endurance and compassion.

This book and its illustrations form a splendid tribute to the pioneers of New Zealand's richest goldfield - the Clutha.

Published by AH & AW Reed in 1978
