Ion Idriess recreates all the colour, vitality and adventure of the long-vanished days of tin mining. Nicknamed “Cyclone Jack” by the natives, he went to the Cooktown tin fields and found himself working with the hard-bitten pioneers at the business end of a pick and shovel; fossicking, digging and learning the finer points of tin mining.
