Meet Local Author Harold Treasure at Cowra Library

Fri 16 June at 10:30 am - 12:00 pm


Join us at Cowra Library when local author and farmer Harold Treasure launches his book King’s Spur on Friday 16 June at 10.30am.

King’s Spur is set in the Dargo High Plains last century and is inspired by distant Treasure relatives who are part of the High Country cattleman myths and legends.

This fictional story has its roots in history, wild remote landscapes and challenges faced by the first Europeans.

The book features Emmanuel, the foreman in a gold sluice mine, when his headstrong wife Emily acquires a lease on the High Plains, against her husband’s wishes. He becomes a reluctant cattleman, struggles against nature and faces the challenges posed by another determined woman – his daughter Nell.

King’s Spur will be on sale at the event for $25 and 87-year-old Harold will be on hand to sign copies.
