Bush life in the Western Australian desert, dangerous journeys and lonely deaths by typhoid, thirst, murder, spearing and retributional massacre.  Vast new goldfields, gold won - and lost. Of bush mates and memories of a life long past.

Giving descriptions of the conditions the prospectors faced and of their attitudes to life, including those relating to aboriginals with who the prospectors were often in conflict.

'Mates and Gold' is an insight into the fortitude and humour with which the early prospectors faced the harshness of the goldfields and is one of the few books on the great 1890s gold rush written by one of the original prospectors.
