Hi mate, what do you want for the gold mining in nz book?

River of gold is a great read. The miners had it tough going in nz but nothing like the daily battle against the nature and the natives that the palmer river had in store. The Chinese in particular. Got hung by their pony tails from the trees. Limbs eaten as needed. Gruesome stuff but a very well written description of goldfields life unique to that harsh landscape.
