Publishers Description: The story of Jack Heussler is similar to the story of many young men who went west to seek their fortunes in the growing wool industry after the First World War. The settlers dreams of great riches, encouraged by the successes of the early pastoralists, evaporated before the realities of the Great Depression. Like the elusive Min Min Lights that could never be reached, the promised wealth seemed unattainable. Only a few families with tenacity and courage, and a bit of luck, survived to see the Eldorado of the wool boom and the explosion of technology. This gripping tale not only follows the development of Jacks ambition and its eventual fulfilment but also leaves the reader with a sense of the development of Western Queensland and the rise and fall of the great wool industry that kick-started the Australian economy. Over it all we are intrigued by Jacks relationship with his contemporaries and his family, and the glimpse of his hopes and fears start us examining our own.
