Not just a spectator, the author was among the first gold seekers who took part in the initial mining activities in the northland.

Such a powerful story
Yes, I have recommended this book to several friends.
The story is amazing in it's stark realalism. Man's lust for gold is amazing. The pain and suffering for a relatively worthless metal is overwhelming. The cruelty is just shocking.
The main character, the story teller, really won me over. I'd be proud to call him my friend.
