Miners in the Clouds; a hundred years of scheelite mining at Glenorchy, by Julia Bradshaw.

My first book! Published by Lakes District Museum in Arrowtown in 1997 this book is a colourful representation of a significant historical era in New Zealand. Scheelite is mostly used in the production of military armaments and the industry was closely linked to major world wars. This book gives an account of the fascinating history of the industry and of the personalities  involved.
