It's 1854, and the Ballarat goldfields are a place of dreams and rebellion as Sam, a homeless teenager, is called back to the past to join the Puddlehams, who run 'the best little cook shop on the diggings'.

The Puddlehams dream of buying a hotel with velvet seats, while others dream of freedom from the British crown, away from the rule of wealthy landowners and corrupt officials.

Once again Jackie French takes a fresh look at the history we thought we knew and recreates an event entrenched in our national heritage.

WRITE A REVIEW

Great Historical Fiction

4

This is a great story about what life was like on the Goldfields. I will read this book with my year 5 class. It will give them a greater understanding of what people went through and highlight the significance of the Eureka Stockade and how it has shaped our History.
