George Preshaw’s personal account of his banking days on the goldfields of Victoria, New South Wales and New Zealand is a classic. With dry humour he details his family’s adventures on the Victorian goldfields, his early banking days in New South Wales, and the hardships he endured in New Zealand, carrying out his hazardous duties as a bank official in the wilderness of the West Coast. This new illustrated edition contains historical background to Preshaw’s story and more than 260 images from the goldrush era, making the lively text even more vivid. Now you can see the lives of the diggers through the eyes of the people who were there, and can best tell the story.
