In Queensland in 1885 Barney Lamond and his mate Jack Horrigan heard of gold in the Kimberley. Looking for land and adventure they rode their horses thousands of miles through the wild outback, surviving attacks by natives, thirst and accidents to become some of the first men on the goldfield which changed the history of WA.

Barney Lamond died in 1940 but he had dictated his story, now published for the first time. It is one of the best and most interesting of pioneer accounts of the north.
