RAHS Affiliate History Hill Museum’s Malcolm Drinkwater has published two books now in their third editions. ‘Hill End Gold’ and ‘Hill End Hearsay’ were first published in 1982 and are the result of fifty years of curiosity, hands on education and passion. As Malcolm says “personal encounters with history”.
Both books complement each other – Hill End Gold covers geology, mining methods and more, while ‘Hearsay’ expands with a personal association and oral history to show how a gold town evolved after the rush.
Both books are available on the website historyhill.com.au/history-of-hill-end/publications-new/ for $49.50 plus postage.
