The Diggers' Story

ISBN: 9781927145609

Author: Julia Bradshaw    Publisher: Canterbury University Press

These fascinating 'tales and reminiscences of the Golden Coast direct from Westland's earliest pioneers' were originally compiled by Carl Pfaff for The Diggers' Story, first published in 1914 to mark the 50th anniversary of the gold rushes that transformed this remote part of New Zealand. Long out of print, the book has been thoughtfully edited and expanded for today's readers by Hokitika Museum director Julia Bradshaw.

This new edition of The Diggers' Story features additional stories and information, and is enlivened by more than 160 black and white images and 32 pages of exquisite colour illustrations, many of them previously unpublished. This compelling , richly illustrated record of teh gold rushes will be essential reading for anyone interested in the West Coast's explosive and romantic history.
