Book Description Craig Printing, Invercargill, 2005. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. The book contents are like new. There is somme very minor dulling down to the wraps only. In 1861 Gabriel Read discovered rich gold in Gabriels Gully triggering off the great gold rush to Otago. One year later Hartley and Reilly panned 87 pounds of gold from the Dunstan Gorge of the Clutha River and a second great rush of miners swept into the province. As eager prospectors pushed their way further, fabulously rich strikes were made in the Shotover and Arrow Rivers. Instant gold towns sprung up at Clyde, Alexandra, Cromwell, Arrowtown and Queenstown. Fascinated by the story of Otago's gold rushes, prolific author John Hall-Jones has been tramping into its goldfields for the past 30 years, photographing old gold batteries and sites. Featuring over 300 historical photographs and paintings of the Otago goldfields, many of which have never been published before. Bookseller Inventory # 020089
