Gully of Gold
“This is a story of adventure and mystery on the Victorian gold-diggings in 1851. The four Bennett children had set out from England with their Uncle Harry to go to Australia and make their fortune. On the way the uncle had died, and now they found themselves on their own, with exactly £19 between them.
Jane Ellen, seventeen, the eldest and most sensible, was inclined to go back home, but the others were caught up in the excitement that met them even before they had set foot on Australian soil; for gold had just been discovered in Victoria, and no one could talk of anything else.”
