Book Launch: Snow, Fire and Gold

Carlton, Woiwurrung Country, 309 Lygon St, Carlton, Victoria, 3053

Join us to celebrate the launch of Stephen Whiteside's Snow, Fire and Gold.

Snow, Fire and Gold - the story of Bill and Evelyn Piper’s life in the Australian mountains was inspired by a visit to Spargo’s Hut, near Mt Hotham, in 1982. The hut is a two hour walk from the Hotham resort, and in those days there was no track to follow. I had been told the hut was abandoned, but my first glimpse inside suggested otherwise. Closer inspection revealed, however, that while it was indeed abandoned, it remained crammed full with all the items necessary for everyday living. It looked as though a woman, as well as a man, had lived there. I resolved to learn as much as I could about who had lived there, and why.
