Details

Kimberley Scenes is a collection of material written by people who were involved in Kimberley exploration, prospecting and pastoral enterprise in the 1880s and 1890s. Much of the material deals with the gold rush of 1886, providing rare insight into the events and hardships that marked the short-lived rush. The written material is complemented by numerous photographs. The seventeen individual items presented in Kimberley Scenes include letters written by Glin Layman to his family at Wonnerup House (WA), the rough diary of R.T.S. Wolfe (after whom Wolfe Creek Crater was named) and the reminiscences of August Lucanus, Donald Swan and 'Black' Pat Durack. Taken as a whole, the book offers the best collection of early Kimberley material currently available outside the State Records Office of Western Australia. Where necessary, it has been annotated by Dr Cathie Clement, an authority on the history of Australia's north-west. Kimberley Scenes is thus not only an interesting and informative book but also a thoroughly reliable source for those interested in Australian history. 1991, Hard Cover, 310pp, illustrated. First published in 1991
