AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Becke describes a leisurely journey up the coast of N.S.W., which he undertakes while recovering from malaria. At Camden Haven he meets a young boy who is the son of a man who knew Becke when he was a child. The boy asks if he can accompany him. They discover a patch of black sand containing gold and begin to mine it, but have to hide their activities from two rival fossickers. When Becke meets up with a stockman who was a childhood friend the three of them set out on a prospecting expedition which proves more than satisfactory.
