Siberia to the Sea
Siberia to the Sea

This book summarises the founding principle for one of the West Coast's most famous coal mining centres.

The plan of extracting coal from a locality deep in a valley which the sun barely penetrated and transporting it to the port of Greymouth led to a variety of activities, recorded here with the help of many who took part.

Not only do they recall the difficulties of working the potentially volatile seams of the Liverpool mines, and the task of getting coal away via the Rewanui Incline, but also the way of life in one of the region's most isolated areas.
