Kalgoorlie. It grew out of the red dust of the desert over the world's richest vein of gold. Kalgoorlie was a magnet to anyone with a sense of adventure.
In a story as breathtaking and as sweeping as the land itself, bestselling author Judy Nunn brings Kal magically to life through the lives of two families, one Australian and one Italian. From the heady early days of the gold rush to the horrors of the First World War in Gallipoli and France, to the shame and confrontation of the post-war riots, Kal tells the story of Australia itself and the people who forged a nation out of a harsh and unforgiving land.
