The story of the miners who from 1861 - 1864 traveled to the Otago goldfields in search of gold. They navigated mountains, rivers and plains and this is where nature spun her golden web. This book tells of the many tales and tragedies during this period and the lives and deaths of miners through flood, fighting, the cold and drowning.
Illustrated throughout with monochrome images.
Maps inside front endpaper.
Nice collectable book on New Zealand history that is increasingly scarce.
