AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Goldsmith's first novel, Our Alma (1894), is a light-hearted romance of Italian emigrants and goldmining in Victoria, which received favourable reviews in the colonial press. His second novel, Euancondit, which was published the next year, is a settler's tale that contrasts upper class Melbourne society with bush life.'

Notes

  • This appears to be the first Australian novel with Italian protagonists.
