Description
Early in the morning of 3 December 1854, colonial troopers attacked a group of civilian gold diggers who had thrown up a stockade in defiance and defense. In the years that followed, the truth of what occurred that morning has been obscured by partisans on both sides. John Molony's Eureka vividly recreates the story of Eureka and unravels the myths that have come to surround it. Eureka was first published in 1984 by Viking. A Penguin paperback edition appeared in 1989, but the book has been out of print for several years. The story of Australia's first and only armed rebellion for democratic rights is still relevant today.
