    Description
    The Wild Days of the Palmer River Gold Rush

    The gold rush at Palmer River, on Cape York, lasted about seven years in the 1870s, but with 35,000 diggers it was this country's wildest while it lasted. Hector Holthouse has researched the story of those days of "cannibal blacks, pig-tailed Chinamen in thousands, lynch-law hangings, gambling dens, shanty towns, murders, grog-shops and Italian opera singers" and presents a lively and very readable glimpse at a little known event in Australia's history.
