Meekatharra - End of the Earth,

"Meekatharra: End of the Earth" celebrates the centenary of Meekatharra, and covers the period 1894 to 1994. It tells of the gold discoveries and the ups-and-downs of gold mining. Being the rail head for the vast hinterland to the north, and northwest, stories abound of transport by donkey, and camel teams; of the early motor vehicles, and the present road trains.

There are tales of champion horsemen, Gun shearers, and the many drovers who brought sheep and cattle down the lonely stock routes and many personal reminiscences of former residents.

Interspersed between chapters are numerous Australia bush poems written by former Meekatharra residents.
