The year 1914 marked 50 years of progress for the West Coast - days which started with the Hokitika gold rushes and the sudden influx of tens of thousands of diggers.
To celebrate the anniversary, the pioneers were encouraged to contribute their accounts of those early days, which makes up the The Diggers' Story.
This reprint of the original book has been fittingly compiled with the story of another West Coast pioneer, Reuben Waite, whose story of the fledgling gold field is often quoted, but rarely available in full. Here then is The Diggers’ Story for the first time in company with the pioneering businessman, Reuben Waite.
