Stark and evocative novel set around the New Zealand gold rush of the mid 19th century. Joseph and Harriet Blackstone emigrate from Norfolk to New Zealand in search of a new life and prosperity. But farming the harsh land near Christchurch threatens to destroy them almost before they begin. When Joseph finds gold in the creek he is seized by an obsession with the riches awaiting him. Abandoning his farm and family, he heads off alone for the new gold-fields over the Southern Alps, where many others, in persuit of the seductive dreams of 'the colour', are violently rushing to their destinies. "A fabulous work, bravely imaginative, deeply moving, surprising, invigorating and satisfying" }The Independent{
