Summary
"... Gold tailings explores the private and often forgotten lives of the gold settlers who built these communities. ... moves beyond the sterotypes of rootless single male diggers and analyses how enduring communities were formed when male gold diggers - who often travelled with mates and kin - were joined by women, and together they formed families and networks of common interest and mutual support."--Back cover
