High in the Drakensburg Mountains lies South Africa’s first gold-mining town, Pilgrim’s Rest, where Brett Young set this tale of gold lust, gentle romance and the violent industrial unrest which shook the Rand in 1913. Prospector Jack HaymanMoreHigh in the Drakensburg Mountains lies South Africa’s first gold-mining town, Pilgrim’s Rest, where Brett Young set this tale of gold lust, gentle romance and the violent industrial unrest which shook the Rand in 1913. Prospector Jack Hayman discovers in a dead man’s pocket book rough details of an unregistered goldfield.

Armed with this knowledge, Hayman sets out for Johannesburg and work in the mines where he will raise the stake to seek the field. An address in the pocket book leads him to Mrs Wroth and her daughters with whom he lodges, soon discovering that Beatrice, the elder daughter had been loved by the dead prospector. Stubbornly independent, Hayman refuses to join the union, is branded “scab” and injured in a dubious mine accident.

As the unrest escalates, the Wroth’s house is endangered by his presence. When calm follows the strike, Hayman realises that the goldfield no longer attracts him.
