Australia is one of the world's great sources of mineral treasure. Our landscape is littered with mines bearing evocative names like Rum Jungle, Noble's Nob, Broad Arrow and Siberia. The Rush That Never Ended tells the story of these mineral discoveries, describes the giants of Australia's mining history and records the tremendous influence that mining has had on Australia's attitudes to unionism, religion, law and politics.

The first edition of The Rush That Never Ended was a publishing sensation. It stayed on the best-seller lists for several months and reviewers described it 'a compelling book', 'readable and exciting history', 'full of anecdotes and unforgettable characters'.
