Raymond Boyd Dunn

Author Raymond Boyd Dunnabout this book: The Palmer River, also known as the River of Gold.

The book follows the adventures of a group of people as they trek up to the goldfields from Cook's Town (present day Cooktown) in North Queensland. It was a dangerous journey through the rough bushland of the cannibalistic natives. There is romance, there is humour, and there is tragedy. They spend eight or nine months on the field, and return having made a fortune in gold.

The idea of the story first came to the author during a caravan trip around Australia, and a visit to Cooktown. He had recently finished writing his autobiography, and enjoyed the experience so much that he wanted to write about something else. It was in Cooktown that he learned of the Palmer River Gold rush, spending hours in the museum. He collected as much of the Tourist information as he could, and it was from this that he formulated the adventure described in "Palmer Gold".

After completing "Palmer Gold", writing developed into an addiction, and it became the first book in the Pearson/Rickards Trilogy.
