Poor Man's Gold: the Diary of Reuben Radcliffe, Northland 1899-1900 (My NZ Story)

Author(s): Kath Beattie

New Zealand titles - children

In the hard times of the late 1800s Reuben's father goes into debt in order to move the family to the Waipara district where he runs the local store. They stock everything from hardware to food, but the locals are not in a position to pay, and as Reuben's diary begins the family has been "booted out" by the bank. The only employment available to Mr Radcliffe is gum digging. It is hard life in uncomfortable accommodation, and brings them into conflict with the local Maori trying to retain their land.
