Facsimile of the 1903 edition. John Marshall, was an adventurer, a journalist, a public figure and a Digger's leader on the Coolgardie-Kalgoorlie goldfield. It was here that he wrote of the early days on the fields in 'Battling for Gold'.

This title still remains as one of the best collection of goldfields stories in Western Australia. Stories such as: McCann's nugget, the great Coolgardie fire, the Londonderry golden hole, the goldfield's riots, danger, diseases, death and gold, gold, gold are all mentioned here along with numerous others.

These stirring incidents of goldfields life will live on forever in Australian history.
