About this title:

Synopsis: Between the wars, New Guinea goldfields attracted colourful characters, and yielded great riches to those who could afford to exploit them. In remote jungles, aviation records were broken. More air freight was carried in New Guinea than Europe or America. This big richly illustrated book also tells the story of Australia's inept and ruthless colonial administration and complex race relations. It paints a vivid picture of life on the frontier.
