No, I don’t know where you can find or the alchemist’s secret for making it (and even if I did I wouldn’t tell you!). But Gold!: the fever that forever changed Australia will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about the Australian gold rushes of the late 1800s. <a href=”http://libcatalogue.hurstville.nsw.gov.au/cgi-bin/spydus.exe/ENQ/OPAC/BIBENQ/3150749?QRY=CAUBIBDavid Hill writes in a similar style to <a href=”http://libcatalogue.hurstville.nsw.gov.au/cgi-bin/spydus.exe/ENQ/OPAC/BIBENQ/3150957?QRY=CAUBIBPeter Fitzsimons, using historical documents such as diaries, journals, official reports and newspaper reports to create a great story.
