About the Book

Winner of the 2014 Stella Prize. Ten years in the research, irrepressibly bold, entertaining and often irreverent, this is a fitting tribute to the unbiddable women of the Australian goldfields. These women were central to the events that unfolded. Clare Wright's wonderful book is essential reading for fans of social history.
