This log of miners' stories describes the giants of Australia's mining history and the tremendous influence that mining has had on Australia's attitudes to unionism, religion, law, and politics. Mines bearing quirky names like Rum Jungle, Noble's Nob, Broad Arrow, and Siberia echo the unique personalities and lifestyles of the miners who plumbed their depths. Anecdotes and compelling characters make this readable history as much a literary text as factual record.
