In words and images this book seeks to capture both the glory days and haunting reminders of 21 Victorian gold Rush towns, which today are either small, sleepy, or non-existent.
The authors have also identified slices of important, and often little known, history associated with each of the 21 towns.
Topics as diverse as the lights of Cobb & Co, the pen of Henry Handel Richardson, the sinking of the HMAS Sydney, and the birth of an iconic wine, all have a link to at least one of th towns explored.
