Description - We Are the Rebels: The Women and Men Who Made Eureka by Clare Wright

The Forgotten Rebels of Eureka is the most talked-about work of Australian history in recent years. Now here is Clare Wright's groundbreaking, award-winning study of the women who made the rebellion, in an abridged edition for teenage readers. Front and centre are the vibrant, adventurous personalities who were players in the rebellion- Sarah Hanmer, Ellen Young, Clara Seekamp, Anastasia Hayes and Catherine Bentley, among others. But just as important were the thousands of women who lived, worked and traded on the goldfields - women who have been all but invisible until now. Discovering them changes everything. 'Exhilarating.' Brenda Niall 'Fascinating.' Irish Echo 'A great story.' Courier-Mail 'Beautifully told.' Peter Fitzsimons 'Something for everyone.' NZ Listener 'Refreshing.' Age 'Fills an enormous gap.' Australian
