Long out of print, the book has been thoughtfully edited and expanded for today’s readers. This new edition features additional stories and information and is enlivened by black-and-white images and color illustrations, many of them previously unpublished. This compelling, richly illustrated record of the gold rushes is essential reading for anyone interested in the explosive and romantic history of New Zealands West Coast.
