Secondhand. Good condition. Wear to book corners and edges.
Gold!! It's 1892 and a large deposit of gold has been found in the Western Australian outback. Waves of men, eager to make their fortunes, surge out of Perth into a hostile wilderness, leaving their wives, families and jobs.
Some women follow in their footsteps, including a desperate Cathy Weston, hard on the heels of brother Tom who lies in the desert, dying of typhoid.
In the midst of lawless chaos, she nurses Tom and discovers passion with a ne'er-do-well prospector but her family in Perth call her back to a marriage proposal from a wealthy land-owner.
Cathy will have to make a decision and live with its consequences! (back cover)
