Books Info:

To the Goldfields! free pdf We moved to the goldfields to seek our fortune when I was nine. Arriving at Forest Creek, the noise of the valley could be heard from miles away - there were sixty thousand people digging and shouting and singing all at once. My school was a leaking tent and we slept on mattresses stuffed with leaves, but it was an exciting place to live. After all, at any moment you might dig up a huge nugget of gold!
