The Wild Days of the Palmer River Gold Rush
"What with cannibal blacks‚ pig−tailed Chinamen in thousands‚ lynch−law hangings‚ gambling dens‚ shanty towns‚ murders‚ grog−shops and Italian opera singers‚ the Palmer River Goldfields − properly spun out − should provide enough television material for general exhibition for the next ten years. This one book‚ River of Gold‚ could easily be used as the jumping−off ground for the lot. Read it with Hector Holthouse; he will be your guide; he has loved every minute of it‚ and so will you!"
