Jack lives near the copper mines in the Mid-North of South Australia. The story is set in the 1870’s and Jack and his friend Gilbert expect to work in the mines when they leave school. They make a pact to start work together but Gilbert has to finish school early and Jack must decide whether he will honour their pact. A great story about the early history of South Australia.
