Sheba Blake, Ellen Clacy
Publisher: Sheba Blake Publishing
This fascinating travelogue details the visit of author Ellen Clacy to the massive gold mines that were erected in Australia in the nineteenth century. Twenty-year-old Clacy's visit wasn't a genteel carriage tour -- she camped under the stars and walked hundreds of miles with her brother en route to the mining operations at Bendigo. An engaging account for fans of vivid travel accounts.
