Mining Towns
Mining Towns
Making a Living, Making a Life
At any given moment in our history Australia has been in the middle of a mining boom. This timely book is a history of the iconic Australian towns that arose with these booms over a century: Broken Hill, Mount Isa, Queenstown, Mount Morgan, Port Pirie and Kambalda. <i>Mining Towns</i> shows the rich cultural and historical legacy these towns helped create as townspeople - those working below the ground and those above - sought to make their lives in them. The current 'fly-in-fly-out' mining culture means we may not see the likes of them again, which, as this book shows, will be a great loss.
