This is the story of a Pioneer Family in the Otgao Gold Fields The historical novel picks up the Otago story from where Oatcakes to Otago finished; with the discovery of gold in Central Otago. Thousands of men and a few hardy women gave up what they were doing in California, Canton, Victoria and Dunedin and went into The Interior to make their fortune. While the McDonald family is imaginary, but representative of real characther in the true Otago story, nearly all the situations they encounter are historically correct. It is a story of the courage, perserverance and independence of the Otago pioneer character, forger in the extreme conditions of climate and deprivation. Autographed copies in stock.
