Every chapter in this book is a true and colourful picture of the uproarious days when Australia was like a great golden magnet. It consists of the recollections of pioneers on the central goldfields of Victoria, assembled from the 1880s onwards. Written in the pioneers' own words, it provides a unique record of the way in which men and women thought, spoke, and acted during the golden era which had such far-reaching effects on Australian history.

Such days will never come again, but in this book the reader can feel how it was to be alive when scores of thousands of diggers swamed onto the Victorian goldfields. 

Every line of this book rings true because it was written by people who not only witnessed great events in Australian history, but took an active part in them. In Records of the Castlemaine Pioneers, they have left us an intriguing and invaluable historical document.
