BAD GROUND Inside the Beacsonsfield Mine Rescue

by | Read by Humphrey Bower

Contemporary Culture • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

In 2006, a "rock burst" killed one man and trapped two others in an Australian mine. With his expert storytelling style, Humphrey Bower introduces just a hint of a swagger as he describes the struggles of the rough-edged miners of Beaconsfield. Bower's narration makes it sound as if he's right there at the scene of the disaster. Wright captures the feelings of the miners' friends and relatives, as listeners would expect. What sets the book apart are details that reveal how surprisingly resourceful the trapped miners were. In Bower's portrayal, the miners come across as both ordinary blokes and extraordinary men.
