The Golden Reefs - An Account of the Great Days of Quartz Mining at Reefton, Waiuta and the Lyell

Author(s): Darrell Latham

West Coast | Secondhand

A depiction of an age of colourful characters, and the many ways they made money on the West Coast goldfields; searching implacably for hidden reefs, claim-jumping, or endless litigation.  This is the story of the Victorian-era wrecked machines whose providence had them shipped from Melbourne to Wesport, and dragged piecemeal by riverboat and sledge to the out of the way fields.


Second edition published in 1992.  Signature on title page.  Otherwise in very good condition, and wrapped in a protective jacket.
