CHARLESTON Its Rise and Decline
Irwin Faris

Famous for its dozens of hotels, one for every 150 people, and its Casino girls, Charleston was New Zealand's classic gold mining town. Springing from nowhere in 1866, Charleston grew into a bustling prosperous centre and just as soon collapsed when the gold was gone. First published in 1941, this is a facsimile reprint.
