The story of legendary gold prospector William James O’Leary – Third Edition.
The story of a pioneering folk hero; a colourful tale of adventure, discovery and survival in the remotest areas of New Zealand’s Southern Alps.
O’Leary’s life (1865-1947) spanned a period of NZ history when the country was searching for homegrown heroes. Generations of New Zealanders are familiar with Denis Glover’s poem ARAWATA BILL.
