Book - The Moonlight Legacy.

 George Fairweather Moonlight - Miner, Explorer, Proprietor.

Arch Barclay worked on this for many years. He said there was very little written about this man. From Gabrielle's Gully to Moonlight Creek to Murchison, George Fairweather Moonlight truly was a hardy pioneer.

This book sets out to explain one of New Zealand's real characters. A man who spent time in America and found his way to New Zealand. He was responsible for the discovery of some of the richest gold fields in New Zealand. He was known for being a resilient bush man and a man who wasn't afraid to stretch the truth a little. This has been well researched and contains many links to today. A great read.
