If only the criminals in the colony would just lift their game? After a fitful night spent tossing and turning Slikker provided his mate Eddie with an ear-bashing over breakfast. “Consider... More > the Sketland Mob. Now there was a fair-dinkum reign of terror. Evil bastards, through and through and violent. Mongrels, granted, but sly an’ difficult mongrels. Or the Gang o’ Five. That was a substantive campaign. Murder, corruption, intimidation, and theft. Even sly grogging. They had the whole of Charters Towers under their thumb.

An epidemic of sly reasoning. A sudden plague of moral turpitude. What North Queensland needs, mate, is some decent bloody crims!” Apparently Slikker had entirely forgotten about the old adage that ‘you need to be careful about what you wish for’. Sometimes wishes come true.< Less

The Golden Madness: writings from the Queensland Gold Rush By James Moylan

Prints in 3-5 business days
This volume contains a small selection of my favorite writings relating to the gold rush period in Queensland. I hope to provide the reader with a glimpse of the everyday topics and events that were... More > of interest to the pioneer miners in the north of Australia. By largely avoiding sterile historical accounts in favor of primary texts in which personal opinions and first person observations are unselfconsciously expressed I endeavor to provide a sense of the social complexities of this era. The ‘common sense’ of this period is not our common sense. Many of the sentiments and prejudices expressed are jarring to a modern sensibility. Racist attitudes are unambiguously expressed. Empire is a stolid reality. Women are inferior to men. The ‘great chain of being’ provides an all-encompassing teleology by which all things under heaven might be ordered. Please enjoy a journey to the strangest land of them all – the past. James Moylan Researcher & Author< Less
