Summary
"Miner Joseph Divis, born in Bohemia, photographed life in mining towns Blackball, Waiuta and Waihi where he worked between 1909 and 1935. Although an outsider, Divis loved this country. When he died in 1967 he was one of the last inhabitants in the ghost town of Waiuta, site of one of New Zealand's richest gold-bearing quartz reefs. Thanks to Divis's graphic, sensitive work, we have an extraordinary record of the isolated and often dangerous life in our frontier communities" --Publisher's description
