Grasping at Shadows - Balfour, the mining town in the Tarkine
 
(0 reviews)  

In 1975 a young Adelaide teacher, who wanted to write for the theatre, fell in love with a geologist and followed him to the abandoned Tasmanian mining town of Balfour, in the Tarkine area. With another couple and their two small children, they lived the 1970s back-to-the-bush dream while operating a small-scale tin mining plant.

Part memoir, part history, this is a lively account of life in a remote Tasmanian mining community, in both the early 1900s and between 1975 and 1981.
