The Golden Grey

"Since gold was discovered during the 1860s, the West Coast of the Southern Alps has had many battles with Mother Nature.  Our coal fired the furnaces that industrialised New Zealand and Westland's timber helped build the nation.

This book celebrates 150 years of the last frontier: the discoveries, the wealth, storms, hardships, protests, murders, shipwrecks, disasters, good times and laughter; all moulding the landscape and its people into a character of its own.

Welcome to this place we call home.  Put the billy on, sit back and let West Coasters tell you of a journey which carved a special chapter in New Zealand's history." (Tony Kokshoorn)
